Walk with Diligence
Ephesians 4:3a

The Upward Look
    by Max D. Hutto,

“being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” Ephesians 4:3 NASB

Walking with Christ in a worthy manner leads the believer to develop the character trait of diligence. This walk requires more than a haphazard and superficial commitment or an occasional spiritual activity. Walking with Christ demands a constant and consistent effort and focus. With all determination and steadfastness, the believer must eagerly pursue the task of following Christ. This diligent effort is often demonstrated by spending time in daily Bible study and prayer and by faithful church attendance, serving with other believers in unity and peace.

Lord Jesus, help me to live diligently, focused on obeying You and Your Word. In all that I do, I am determined to bring glory and honor to You.
