Walking with God

by Pastor Ken

By faith, Enoch was taken away, so that he wouldn’t see death, and he was not found, because God translated him. For he has had testimony given to him that before his translation he had been well pleasing to God. Enoch walked with God, and he was not found, for God took him.

Hebrews 11:5, Genesis 5:24

How can you walk with God as Enoch did?

You can tell Him what’s going on in your life. You can open your heart and share what’s in it—worries, plans, work, relationships, goals, struggles, fear, pain…anything and everything. You can tell Him you love Him—that you appreciate what He has done and what He will do for you. You can give your heart, body, soul, and spirit to Him. Let Him lead your life for the glory of God.

When you walk with Jesus, you get to know Him better. The better you know Him, the more you become like Him. And the more you become like Him, the more likely to do what Jesus wants you to do even when it isn’t popular or goes against the opinions of the world. (1 Peter 2:19-20).

Walking with God also makes worship and sharing the message of salvation with others a natural part of who you are (Hebrews 13:15-16). When you live this way, one day Jesus will come and take you to heaven for all eternity where you will walk with God just like Enoch.

Prayer: Jesus, help me to walk with You as Enoch did today and every day. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
