The Most Excellent Way

Those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. – Galatians 5:24-25

There is a definite upside to getting connecting and internalizing the guiding principles taught by Christ. As brought out in the post “Treasures of Transformation”, the attitude and behavior of a Christ follower should be to respect authority, be obedient, helpful, considerate, gentle, and peaceful.

The way taught by Christ is the most excellent Way. The objective is to live and walk in the Spirit by being devoted to excellence and storing up spiritual treasures. To daily discover the finest qualities in other people and encourage them so they add benefit to your own life and society as a whole.

The song Lead Me to the Cross by Hillsongs explains how humanity was tempted and tried, the Word became flesh to die on the Cross as a sacrifice, and God’s love was poured out for all. Grace allows the power of the Spirit to transform us into who we are meant to be.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
