Learning To Walk–Part 7


Ephesians 5:15-21See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.


Walking worthy of the Lord: We are to live our life in a way that expresses our esteem for the Lord. We are to live in a way that expresses how important the Lord is to us and how much we value our relationship with Him. Our life should also be an expression of our thankfulness for all that he has done for us. To do this we must walk Circumspectly.

Walk Circumspectly: To walk circumspectly is to walk accurately, carefully, and exactly. Ephesians 5:15-21 reveals what this means. It is to walk as those that are wise. Those that are wise will redeem the time taking advantage of every opportunity with the realization that the days are evil. We are to be wise, understanding what the will of the Lord is. The wise will be filled with and enabled by the Spirit because they know that the days are evil and that they must take advantage of the opportunities they have

The benefits: We will have a joy that results in us speaking to ourselves in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. We will sing and make melody in our hearts to the Lord. We will give thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and we will willingly submit ourselves one to another in the fear of God.
