Daily Bible Verse - 10/22/2007 - 1 John 2:6

Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did. (NIV)

He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked. (KJV)

the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked. (NASB)

1 John 2:6

Therefore, whoever says he abides in Him should walk just as the Lord Jesus walked. His life, as set forth in the Gospels, is our pattern and guide. It is not a life which we can live in our own strength or energy, but is only possible in the power of the Holy Spirit. Our responsibility is to turn our lives over to Him unreservedly, and allow Him to live His life in and through us.

Nashville: Thomas Nelson. walk Slaves must follow the commands of their masters or they will be punished. Employees need to do their work to keep their jobs. However, the Christian as a child of God ought to obey God because of a sincere desire to do so. It should be a joy to follow in the footsteps of the One who died for us.
