Amos 3:3 - My Lord and I

Amos 3:3: My Lord and I

Can two walk together, except they be agreed? Amos 3:3 (KJV)

Shall two walk together at all, if they do not know one
another?" To "walk together" with God means, not an occasional act, but a
continuing habit that issues from an established relation. It means a
companionship based upon a mutual harmony of mind and spirit. Two people must
go in the same direction if they are to walk "together." [SDA

They could not expect communion with God, unless they first
sought peace with him. Where there is not friendship, there can be no
fellowship. God and man cannot walk together, except they are agreed. Unless
we seek his glory, we cannot walk with him. [Matthew Henry

Priscilla is inseparable from her husband because "their two
hearts beat as one."  They walked as one, for they had mutually agreed
to put Christ first.  They were one in marital bliss, in their
secular occupation, in their friendship with Paul, and in their service
to the chruch.  The oneness of Priscilla and Acquila shame the
self-centeredness of our day.  We spend much of our time demanding our own way,
and striving for self-recognition.  Throughout the history of
Christianity, however, the truly great characters have always been simple and
humble men and women.  Will you be listed among the simple and humble
in the Lord's records? [In His Time; Walk With Wisdom re 1Co.16:19]

Enoch walked with God. He was of one mind with God. The prophet
asks, "Can two walk together, except they be agreed?" If we are of one
mind with God, our will will be swallowed up in God's will and we
shall follow wherever God leads the way. As a loving child places his
hand in that of his father, and walks with him in perfect trust
whether it is dark or bright, so the sons and daughters of God are to
walk with Jesus through joy or sorrow. . . .

The followers of Christ are to manifest to the world the
characteristics of their Lord. They must not become careless or inattentive to
their duty, or indifferent as to their influence, for they are to be
representatives of Jesus in the earth. . . .

Those who do not walk in all faith and purity find the thought
of coming into the presence of God a thought of terror. They do not
love to think or speak of God. They say in heart and by their
actions, "Depart from us, O God; we desire not the knowledge of thy
ways." But through faith in Christ the true Christian knows the mind
and will of God. He understands by a living experience something of
the length and depth and breadth and height of the love of God that
passeth knowledge.

The soul that loves God loves to draw strength from Him by
constant communion with Him. When it becomes the habit of the soul to
converse with God, the power of the evil one is broken, for Satan cannot
abide near the soul that draws nigh unto God. If Christ is your
companion, you will not cherish vain and impure thoughts; you will not
indulge in trifling words that will grieve Him who has come to be the
sanctifier of your soul. . . .

Those who are sanctified through the truth are living
recommendations of its power, and representatives of their risen Lord. The
religion of Christ will refine the taste, sanctify the judgment, elevate,
purify, and ennoble the soul, making the Christian more and more fit for
the society of the heavenly angels. [www.bibleuniverse.com]
