Striding with christ the concept of walk in the ephesian letter
Striding with Christ The Concept of "Walk" in the Ephesian Letter

The Greek word translated as “walk”

(peripateo,) is used in the Bible

(especially in Ephesians)

in a figurative sense " . . . signifying the whole

round of the activities of the individual life . . ."

(A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament,

654-55; Vine's Expository Dictionary of the New Testament, 1218).


Stride walk with christ
“Stride-Walk” with Christ

Is a visual

metaphor for how

we live in Christ

and live for Christ

in this demonically

ruled, fallen world.

Warning the achilles heal of mistaken christian living
Warning: The “Achilles Heal”of Mistaken Christian Living

We cannot

“walk”

or “live” for

Christ

in our

own power


All of the walks depend on being filled with the holy spirit
All of the “Walks” depend on being “Filled with The Holy Spirit”

The Main Verb in 5:18

is a Command

Be filled

(plerousthe)

We are commanded or

instructed to allow the

Holy Spirit to fill us.


Results of being filled with the spirit
Results of being filled with the Spirit:

Paul in this context lists “results”

or “evidences” in participle form

or words ending in “ing”

5:19: speaking . . .

5:19: singing and hymning

5:20: thanking . . .

5:21: submitting to one another . . .


How i think eph 5 18 21 should be diagrammed
How I think Eph. 5:18-21 should be diagrammed.

Main verb of command:(Eph. 5:18)

Be filled

5:19: speaking . . .

5:19: singing and hymning . . .

5:20: thanking . . .

5:21: submitting to one another . . .

The Participles take their direction from the main verb and describe what happens because of being filled with the Spirit


How being filled relates to walking with christ being filled leads to walking with christ
How Being Filled relates to “Walking” with Christ:Being Filled leads to “Walking with Christ”

2:10 Walk in “Good Works”

4:1 Walk “Worthy”

4:17 Walk in “Renewed Mind”

5:2 Walk in “Agape Love”

5:8 Walk in “Light”

5:15 Walk in “Wisdom”


Conclusions
Conclusions

Sitting leads to

Striding

only when we allow the

Holy Spirit

(whom we already have)

to fill us or control us.


Sitting striding and standing
Sitting, Striding and Standing

If we understand what it means to be

“Sitting”with Christ,

and we then

“Stride”with Christ in this world,

then and only then we will be able

to “Stand”with Christ

against Satan and demons.
