As a Christian, we should want to do good and live a righteous life. Even though we have the salvation of Christ and the freedom it brings, his love and grace should drive us to live a life walking in the Lord. Romans 3:31 says, “Do we then overthrow the law by this faith? By no means! On the contrary, we uphold the law.”
Righteous living can be difficult; however, the Lord can motivate us toward that kind of life. Walking by faith means living a righteous life. Our love for the Lord and His Word points us toward our faith. When my son first came to know the Lord, not much changed. However, soon his behavior and attitude began to change. He began to want to serve the Lord. That is what walking by faith does. It leads us to the Lord and brings joy to our lives.
Are you pursuing the Lord? Spend some time in prayer today and ask God to continue to draw you into a relationship with Him so you will want to serve Him.
