Walk Circumspectly. Ephesians 5:15

January 14   Walk circumspectly.  Ephesians 5:15

Ephesians 5:15  See then that ye walk circumspectly,
not as fools, but as wise,

You are in an enemy’s land; surrounded by temptations; and have a heart that is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked.

To honour Jesus in your spirit communications, and every action, should be your constant aim. You are to live unto the Lord, for Him who died for you and rose again.

To this end, provision was laid up in the everlasting covenant, for  this purpose the precious promises were made, and with this design the Holy Spirit is given; that you may serve Him in righteousness and holiness all the days of your life. 

This world  is not your home; Satan’s family are not to be your associates; riches, honours or pleasure, are not to be your objects; you are to walk as in the midst of snares;  watchful,  praying, depending upon Jesus, and cultivation fellowship with Him.

Oh, keep your eyes on Jesus as your example;  walk by His word as your rule; be not venturesome or presumptuous, but avoid the very appearance of evil.   Never leave the Lord’s ways or ordinances, to join the world’s parties or please a carnal fancy.

Keep close to Jesus, and follow on to  know the Lord. Act as a loving child going home to his father’s house.

So let our lips and lives express
The holy gospel we profess;
So let our works and virtues shine,
To prove the doctrine all divine.
James Smith
