Holy Spirit - Holy Way

"All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies" (Psalm 25:10)

The third point is: Let's walk in righteousness. The grace of God that bringeth salvation also teaches the heart that we should deny ungodliness and worldly lusts and live soberly and righteously and godly in this present world.

There you have the three dimensions of life. Soberly - that is me. Righteously - that is my fellowman. Godly - that is God.

Let us not make the mistake of thinking we can be spiritual and not be good. Let's not make the mistake of thinking we can walk with the Holy Spirit and go a wrong or a dirty or an unrighteous way, for how can two walk together except they be agreed?

He is the Holy Spirit, and if I walk an unholy way, how can I fellowship with Him?

No matter how men deny and resist, the Bible teaches that the purification of the heart is the work of God. John states that it is while "we  walk in the light," "[having] fellowship one with another," that then "the blood of Jesus Christ ... cleanseth us from all sin" (1 John 1:7).
