When we began with the Lord, we were very careful about what we did. One, we did not want God to take away His redemption. But secondly, we want to please God for what He did in our lives, picking us up from the dirt and cleaning us off. As we progressed with the Lord, there is a tendency to make our own decisions and not follow God. As believers we have to make our own decisions because of free will. But when we came to the Lord, we gave our lives to Christ. As the scripture says we are crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live, yet not I, but Christ lives in me (Galatians 2:20). Which means that we are dead to this world and alive to Christ. Do you cheer as much for Christ as your favorite football team? Are you excited about going to church? Do your neighbors see Jesus in you? Do you love your neighbors as much as yourself? If you have answered no to these questions, then you need to reevaluate your relationship with Jesus. Our walk with Jesus means that we are committed to the cause of Christ. God gave us everything, when He sent Jesus to die for our sins. But what glorifies God is our free will offering of ourselves. This does not mean that we do not live in this world. But what it does mean is that we change our world into what God has called us to be. People are looking for what is real. This means they want to see a God that is alive and real. God works through us. So, if the world cannot see Jesus in us, there is something wrong in our lives. This is what it means to walk circumspectly.
Ephesians 5:15.16 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
