Walk in the Spirit: 5 Practical Ways to Walk in Perfection!

Walk in the Spirit means obeying the ‘spiritual compass’ of the Lord during your journey in this world. There are many questions such as:

Who can be a perfect man? Can anyone on earth be holy as the Lord? Is it possible to live without sin in this sinful world…?

Despite the LORD’s instructions to us to be perfect, holy and sinless, many people still find it impossible to do. Why? The reason is simply because many don’t walk in the Spirit.

Today’s message will elaborate the significance of Holy Spirit and how to walk in the presence of the LORD blamelessly.

Who is the Holy Spirit?

Holy Spirit is the Spirit of GOD. Jesus says: “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” (John 4:24)

The plan of God for our permanent salvation is to send a sinless being (Jesus Christ) as the last sacrifice for cleansing our sins and after the Blood and Resurrection, His Holy Spirit will always be available to guide us in all our steps on earth.

Holy Spirit is the only Helper that can make you have a successful walk. Jesus says: “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.”

7 Ways to Receive the Holy Spirit

You can only walk in the Spirit if you have the Spirit of God in you.

To receive the Holy Spirit has nothing to do with learning the language of speaking in tongues, anointed handkerchief, drinking holy coconut water and anointing oil or moving from one Pastor to another.

Note: No one is a distributor of the Holy Spirit, it belongs to GOD and it only comes from the LORD.

I received the Holy Spirit directly from GOD, so if you want a genuine Spirit then do the following:

1. Make a choice to leave worldliness and love godliness

2. Confess your sins from the depth of your heart

3. Repent from your careless life and decide to follow Jesus Christ

4. Pray to the LORD for Forgiveness

5. Read and Obey the commandments of Jesus Christ

6. Give your whole heart to the LORD

7. Pray to God to bless you with His Holy Spirit

If you follow the seven steps above, the Holy Spirit will be activated in you. Not necessarily through speaking in tongues because there are many other gifts of the Spirit. Please read First Corinthians chapter 12 for more understanding.

The main signal to know that the Holy Spirit is in you is; He will always instruct you to do the right things and give you wise advice and brilliant opinions that won’t make you stumble as you walk in the spirit.

He is also responsible for the success of your daily endeavours and you won’t be a failure anymore. I always enjoy the counsel of the Holy Spirit every minute of my life!

What is the Way of the Holy Spirit?

To walk in the Spirit requires knowing the way of the Holy Spirit.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6)

Thus, the way of the Holy Spirit is Jesus. So, how can you understand the way? You can do this by:

1. Studying the life of Jesus as written in the Bible

2. Drafting all His commandments and

3. Understanding the broad picture of His salvation for your life

The way of the Holy Spirit is summarised as the route of Righteousness. So, when you walk in Spirit you are invariably working in God’s Righteousness.

5 Practical Ways to Walk in the Spirit

1. Love Jesus with all your Mind

Not the love on the lips, but the true love that can be seen in your lifestyle.

“Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.” (John 14:23)

Hallelujah! I love this passage so much because it works so much for me!

2. Make your Body a Living Sacrifice

Be cautious of the things you do with your body. Don’t involve yourself in the works of the flesh such as: image transformation (tattoos, make-ups…), adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like… (Galatians 5:19-21)

3. Produce Fruits of the Spirit

To walk in the Spirit is a righteous lifestyle and not a doctrine. Thus, your life must have the following qualities; love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

4. Daily Devotion of your Life

My practical experience shows that I can’t live today through the glory of yesterday. If you want to walk in Spirit always, then always refresh your mind in the presence of the LORD every morning.

Pronounce your dedication to serve Him with all your heart and ask Him for divine strength on daily basis. Did you know the cause for daily Prayers? The reason is each day has its own peculiarity.

Jesus says: “…Sufficient for the day is its own trouble…” (Matthew 6:34)

5. Eat the Bible like Food

Download the soft copy of the Bible into your mobile phones, tablet, laptop and USB devices for the audio versions. I recommend the NKJV and NLT versions because I noticed many new versions watered down the original meaning of the scriptures.

To walk in the Spirit involves knowing the word (instructions) of God. Despite my busy schedules, I put on my ear-piece to listen to the audio Bible for perfect remembrance of the route and direction to follow.


The benefits of walking in the Spirit are the unlimited Joy on earth and the inheritance of Heaven. If you want to consistently walk in the Spirit then forsake the things of this world and obey the commandments of Jesus Christ and don’t disobey the voice of the Holy Spirit.
