Walking with God
This next part deals with our trek through life. How we walk on a daily basis. Very few of these verses will use the word "walk" in the physical transportation mode. Most of them deal with how we conduct ourselves in God's kingdom and of our conduct in the physical world. We can call this our manner of lifestyle.

Jesus described the way to God as being narrow and straight. We must walk directly towards God and heaven. Our goal is heaven and we must walk in such a way that God will invite us in. We cannot drift around. We must be diligent to stay on that narrow pathway. We may have to leave others we care about on another pathway. We cannot go with the masses, because their way leads to destruction. We cannot enjoy the pleasures of the world and stay on the straight and narrow. The choice is ours. God by His mercy and grace has given us the two options to choose from. We must make the right choice. Only you can do that. No one can do it for you. Others can help you, but nobody can force you. You must willingly live your life on the pathway that leads to heaven. The Bible is the roadmap, other Christians are your guiding lights, and Jesus is the way.
