Introducing Walking in the Way

Fresh.

New.

Familiar, too.

That’s Walking in the Way.

We’ll continue to feature book reviews, short Bible studies, and looking at current events and other themes from a biblical perspective. But I also want it to be more accessible to you.

So, we’ve changed our name to Walking in the Way, which is inspired by many Scripture passages. For example:

  • Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee (Psalm 143:8).
  • I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths (Proverbs 4:11).
  • And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left (Isaiah 30:21).
  • And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way (Mark 10:52).

We’ve also changed our location. Make sure you save it, so you can visit us regularly.

Walking in the Way is about two main concepts:

  1. Finding the Way—What does God want? How is He directing? What does the Bible say about this subject?
  2. Walking in the Way—Actually following God’s will. It’s not enough to know in our heads. We need to put feet to pavement and actually walk in His ways.

There are many verses about walking in the way, but I’d like to share several from Psalm 119. The psalmist—we’re not sure if it’s David or not—asks God to teach him so that he can obey.

Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD. Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart. They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways. Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently. O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes! Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments. I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments. I will keep thy statutes…. With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments…. Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart. Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight (Psalm 199:1-8a, 10, 34-35).  Can you sense the psalmist’s heart desire? He wants to know God’s Word so he can do what the Lord wants. Also, he delights in God’s Word. This inspires me!

At the beginning of this year, I’m introducing my new blog, Walking in the Way. I want to share my passion for the Bible with you. More than that, I want to grow with you. I want Walking in the Way to be about mutual spiritual growth. Join me as I learn and share with you.

May the Lord bless you,
