“Be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, so that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him.” Wisdom is to know God’s truth and apply it to all of your life situations. To walk worthy of Jesus means to live a daily lifestyle that reflects Jesus Christ. Jesus doesn’t save someone from Hell only. He saves that person from their sinful lifestyle and its eternal consequences. Jesus is a package deal, so the gift of eternal life always includes a new daily life. A Christian is saved from a me-lifestyle and empowered to live a lifestyle that reflects the values and characteristics of Jesus.
This changes everything! This impacts all of your lifestyle choices. This impacts what you spend your time, money, and family resources on. This changes who you date, who teaches your children, where you work, where you live. If you truly live a life that matches up to how Jesus would live it, you have to crucify your own aspirations and conform them to Christ’s aspirations.
Last thing: The kingdom of Jesus Christ is spreading across the globe through changed lives. When a sinful lifestyle is replaced by an everyday Jesus-lifestyle, a little piece of Satan’s kingdom has been replaced forever by Christ’s kingdom. As soldiers in the advance of the kingdom of Jesus, we are constantly faced with the decision of whether we’ll surrender our futures for a future of extending the kingdom one soul at a time. Say with Joshua, “as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.”
If you’re a Christian, you’re part of this. It is a daily conquest! You will have everything that you need, when you pursue this lifestyle: humility, hope, faith, joy, friends, success, and you will have Christ.
