Walk Just as He Walked

Synopsis: John teaches us that an important part of being in fellowship with God is that we walk as He walked. To do this we must consider how he walked in the world and then be ready to imitate Him. Perhaps more importantly, this reminds us that truth is for doing.
Thoughts from this lesson from Martyn Lloyd-Jones in Studies in 1 John: Walking with God and Jim McGuiggan ( http://www.jimmcguiggan.com/weekly2.asp?id_message=58 )
