What Does it Mean to “Walk in the Spirit?”

He is a retired seminary chancellor and currently serves as the James Ragsdale Chair of Missions at Erskine Theological Seminary. He is the President of Faith for Living and the D. James Kennedy Institute a long-time Presbyterian minister, and Chaplain (Colonel) USA-R. Dr. Milton is the author of more than thirty books and a musician with five albums released. Mike and his wife, Mae, reside in North Carolina.
Christianity was first called “the Way.” It is not surprising, then, that the Bible instructs believers to “walk” a certain way. Even today we hear others ask us about “our journey.” Walking the journey means to live as disciples of Jesus, following Him on “the Way” that leads to abundant and eternal life. We are able to do this as we are baptized into the Body of Christ by the Holy Spirit and are sanctified — increasingly formed into the life of Jesus through the power of His Holy Spirit. The Apostle Paul spoke to this “walk” of faith in Galatians: “But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify desires of the flesh” (Galatians 5:16); and “If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit” (Galatians 5:25).
To understand this passage and the meaning for our lives today, we must isolate the context, exposit the meaning, and apply the mind of God in the passage. Let’s begin with the context.

“The extra mile challenge was one of the craziest things I have ever done! Sleeping in a cave 2 miles into the earth was something I will never forget. The course was tough but really lead me closer to the Lord and built some maturity into my life.”
