Best Foot Forward

I remember very little about my early childhood years. I don’t remember the first meals I had, the first toys I played with, or the first words I said. What I do remember is needing someone to help me until I could walk on my own without stumbling.

Learning to walk with Jesus is a lot like learning to walk. We need help taking our first steps in faith. Sure, God uses other believers to help us take our next steps. That’s why being involved in a local church is critical to your growth with Christ. You can’t do life alone.

In Galatians, Paul encourages us to walk by the Spirit instead of following our fleshly desires.
When we walk by the Spirit, we are helped and supported as we follow Jesus daily. When we walk with Him, it is impossible to not be following Him. When we walk with Jesus, our next steps are always guided to a place of goodness and mercy.

Take a minute to ask yourself: What are some ways you can be walking by the Spirit? Where in your life are you following your own fleshly desires?
