Connecting the reading to the walking

Living, or walking for the glory of God, in a way worthy of God, is the goal — but the crucial piece that connects the reading to the walking is believing. That is what Paul means when he says that we walk by faith, not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7). We learn the path of what is in Christ by seeing Christ and treasuring him. (Desiring God)

We talk so much about the separate activities of reading about our faith and then living it out but the connecting piece — the believing in the thing so deeply that we have no other choice than to be governed by what we read — is paramount.

And often skipped over.
