Our Christian Walk and the Golden Street

Revelation 21:21, speaking about New Jerusalem, says “the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.” How we walk should match where we walk, so let us look at what the New Testament says about our Christian walk.

The catalyst for this post is Colossians 2:6 “As therefore you have received the Christ, Jesus the Lord, walk in Him.” During the years of His earthly ministry recorded in the gospels, the disciples walked with Jesus. Now, in the time of His resurrection, we walk in Him.

New JerusalemHere are various aspects our walk (including our actions and our speaking) in Christ Jesus our Lord.
We walk by the Spirit and according to the spirit (Romans 8:4, Galatians 5:16).
We walk in newness of life. This is the eternal life we received when we “received the Christ, Jesus the Lord.”
We walk in the light as children of light (1 John 1:7, Ephesians 5:8). This is the light of life in John 1:4, which we often realize in our conscience either guiding us or convicting us of a failure in our walk.
We also have a walk in truth (2 John 4, 3 John 3). The real truth is Jesus Himself, as He told us in John 14:6. Our walk in truth is our walk in Him.
Furthermore, we walk in love (Romans 14:15). Because we love God, His love abides in us and is manifested through us to others in our daily walk.

Our walk is by faith, not by appearance (2 Corinthians 5:7). Faith joins us to the resurrected Lord that we may be supplied by Him with life, light, truth, and love. As a result He is magnified in our daily walk. This is the kind of walk which matches the golden street of New Jerusalem.
