Charles Stanley on Listening and Walking with God

Ephesians 4:1 Therefore I, the prisoner of the Lord, implore you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called

Today's blog features thoughts from a message I recently heard by Dr. Charles Stanley, Pastor of First Baptist Church, Atlanta Georgia.  The title of the message was: "Listening to God - Walking with God".  I thought what he preached about listening to and walk with God was one of the greatest summaries I have ever heard on the subject.  I could not bear not sharing this with you dear reader.

In the course of the message Dr. Stanley listed 20 items dealing with the subject of listening and walking with God.  I have listed them below, and pray you will be as blessed as I was when I first heard them.

Walking with God involves.....
1. Faith
2. Agreement with God
3. Fellowship with God
4. Awareness of His Presence
5. Cheerful Obedience
6. Truth
7. Intimacy with God
8. The Will of God
9. Continuous Surrender
10. The Work of the Holy Spirit
11. Peace
12. Confidence
13. Security
14. Joy
15. Pleasing to God
16. Revolves around Jesus
17. Life separate from sin
18. Life that makes a difference
19. Progressive Journey
20. Its a Godly Life

May you be richly blessed this day as you aim to listen to God through His word and walk with the Lord in prayer.
