Walking Like Enoch

Genesis 5.21-24 (NASB95): 21 Enoch lived sixty-five years, and became the father of Methuselah. 22 Then Enoch walked with God three hundred years after he became the father of Methuselah, and he had other sons and daughters. 23 So all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years. 24 Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.

There’s a wonderful promise in Isaiah 40.31:
Yet those who wait for the LORD
Will gain new strength;
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary.

Waiting upon the Lord: trusting Him, looking to Him by faith in Christ Jesus, clinging to all He promises to be and do for us in Christ Jesus. This is a glorious promise.

Enoch, long before this promise was ever given, was a faithful believer in the God of this promise. Enoch lived during a time in which darkness was encroaching fast upon man. In just 3 generations, God would be so “put out” with the sin of mankind that He would bring a terrible judgment upon the earth (Gen. 6.1-6). But Enoch was not like this. So different was he than the rest of mankind that God blessed him with not having to die a physical death. The curse of Adam was lifted off this one man. And all because he walked with God.

Walking clearly implies a continual process. And throughout Scripture, life is to be found in walking with God. By faith, we walk… we fulfill our covenant obligations which we have with God in Christ Jesus. May we find the way to walk in a pleasing manner (Hebrews 11.5) and be so unlike the world around us that Christ is glorified, God is pleased and others can see the testimony in our life.

By His Grace For His Glory,

Pastor Kevin
