Walk in the same way in which He walked.
1 John 2:6
To be affected by Christ is to be influenced by His power and respond emotionally. After the initial response, we must “continue to live in Him” (Col. 2:6). The effect, or action response, of our faith is to walk from the emotional response. We walk like Jesus because “it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me” (Gal. 2:20). We cannot remain in emotional state because emotions are wired into our fallen and renewed natures. The enemy can manipulate us through our feelings, but cannot in our fruit display (Gal. 5:22-23). The fruit of the Spirit, not feelings of self, indicate our faithful follow.
Pray that the Holy Spirit will conform you to the likeness of Christ.
Live Forever Free,
