Revelation 21:21b says, “And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.” Prior posts have considered the golden street as the divine nature in which we walk beginning from our regeneration. Now we should look at “the street.” In New Jerusalem there is only one street, in contrast to modern man-made cities which have thousands of streets. The one street in New Jerusalem indicates that we do not have options; we have only the way of the divine nature and this one way is more than sufficient for all of God’s people.
We find the one street, the one way, in Jesus Christ. He declared, “I am the way and the truth and the life” (John 14:6). Our unique walk on the one way in Jesus Christ is described variously in the New Testament:
•__Romans 6:4 “walk in newness of life”—the life which is Jesus Christ (John 14:6).
•__Romans 8:4 “walk…according to the spirit”—where we are one with the Lord (1 Corinthians 6:17).
•__Ephesians 5:2 “walk in love”—the love which is God who abides in us (1 John 4:16).
•__1 John 1:7 “walk in the light as He is in the light”—the light is God (1 John 1:5) in Jesus Christ, who is the light of life (John 8:12).
•__3 John 1:3 “you walk in truth”—the truth which is Jesus Christ (John 14:6).
Colossians 2:6 “As therefore you have received the Christ, Jesus the Lord, walk in Him.” We have received Him, believing into Him, and now we walk in Him. He is our one way and we walk in Him. This walk will continue into New Jerusalem and for eternity.
