Walk This Way

“‘Come, follow me,’ Jesus said.” Matt 4:9. “Whoever says He abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked” 1 John 2:6.

The movie Arthur with Dudley Moore has always provided many laughs for me and Bruce over the years. One of our favorite scenes is dear to us because my father-in-law would always imitate it both pre Alzheimer’s and even in his Alzheimer’s. He never forgot how the butler looked at Arthur and told him to ‘walk this way.’ In an effort to walk exactly like the goofy butler Arthur humps over and perfectly imitates him although looking ridiculous.

Art does imitate life many times doesn’t it? When Jesus originally asked the disciples to follow Him they had no idea what following Christ would look like. Many days I am confident that the manner in which they walked felt odd and uncomfortable. Can you imagine the private conversations when they had been asked to duplicate the actions of Jesus? Have there been times in your life when Jesus is asking you to walk with Him that looks seemingly ridiculous or uncomfortable? Following Jesus will never be based on our comfort or convenience. Walking like Jesus was never meant to be easy … our proof is in the cross. But through His resurrection He grants us the power to accomplish and endure anything.

When you are asked by God to follow Him into whatever circumstance do you go kicking and screaming or are you in perfect harmony with the Leader? We are to follow Him and respond like Him who gives us the power to be like Him. Until we are with Him and fully like Him we are to walk behind Him learning His ways.

‘Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.” Gal 5:25
