The Ephesians Walk

walkPerhaps you have heard of The Roman Road. This is a string of verses from the book of Romans that people use in communicating the gospel. In keeping with that theme, let’s take a look at The Ephesians Walk.

In reading through Paul’s letter to the Ephesians church, he speaks about their walk seven different times. He references both what their walk formerly looked like and what it should now look like. A path does exist for those who would follow the Lord.

In this article I simply want to list the various usages from Paul. We might revisit these later in a bit more detail.

1. The Worldly Walk

And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—

–Ephesians 2:1-2, ESV

2. The Workman Walk

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works,which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

–Ephesians 2:10, ESV

3. The Worthy Walk

I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called,

–Ephesians 4:1, ESV

4. The Futile Walk

Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds.

–Ephesians 4:17, ESV

5. The Loving Walk

And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, afragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

–Ephesians 5:2, ESV

6. The Light Walk

for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.

–Ephesians 5:8-10, ESV

7. The Wise Walk

Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.

–Ephesians 5:15-16, ESV
