It was by faith that Enoch was taken up to heaven without dying-“he disappeared, because God took him.” For before he was taken up, he was known as a person who pleased God.Hebrews 11:5
Walk with God
The story of Enoch has always intrigued me. Here we have the recount of the story from Genesis. Enoch walked with God and had a pure heart, so God spared him death and took him to heaven to be with Him. He was known as a person who pleased the Lord. Can you imagine what that must’ve been like? Did people see? Did people wonder what happened to Enoch? Were they so aware of his faith that they knew he must have gone to be with the Lord?
This should be every Christian’s goal. Not to escape death, but to walk with God in such a way that their lives are a mirror of who God is. They please the Lord with every word and every action. Take some time to really pray and ask God to help you walk with Him everyday.
A Prayer to Remember
May I walk with you everyday. Help strengthen my relationship with you. I long to have the type of friendship with you that Enoch had. Amen.
