Scripture often uses a figurative use of the word “walk” to describe a way or conduct of life. Interestingly enough, Paul uses this terminology most often to describe a Christian way of living. Perhaps this is why the Christian life is characterized by walking in a manner worthy of our calling (Ephesians 4:1), walking in love (Ephesians 5:2), or walking in the light (1 John 1:7).
One of the most powerful descriptions that characterizes the Christian way of life is walking by faith (2 Corinthians 5:7). Paul’s use of faith is connected to the word of God. We are to walk by “the” faith, not by sight.
Leaders set the example for others. No greater example can be found than a life that is characterized by continually walking in keeping with the qualities described above.
Consider the influence of a spiritual leader who lives each day by the word of God. They will be one who walks with God. They will put the needs of others above themselves. They will seek things above, not on this earth.
Leaders, we just need to keep on walking.
