Sunday Morning, November 29, 2015 ~ Walking with God

Walking with God

Genesis 51:21-24 ~ “And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah: And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters: And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years: And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.
  • Our Christian life is a walk – a journey which requires dedication, courage and persistence.
  • Our Christian life is a walk – calls for self-surrender, a fully yielded life and an intense desire to please God rather than ourselves.
Not much is told to us about Enoch, except:
  • One of two men whom it is said “he walked with God.”
  • One of two men that lived on Earth and went to Heaven without passing through death.
  • Only man, besides Jesus Christ, of whom it is written that “he pleased God.”
Three things about this spiritual walk: First, this is a walk with God.
  • This is not an ordinary walk and you do not keep company with the ordinary. You are walking with God.
  • You are walking with God . . .
    • Who  clothes Himself with honor and majesty.
    • Who covers Himself with light as with a garment.
    • Who stretched out the heavens like a curtain.
    • Who makes the clouds His chariot.
    • Who walks upon the wings of the wind.
    • Who makes His angels spirits and His ministries a flaming fire.
    • Who appointed the moon its seasons and the sun its appointed time to go down.
Leviticus 26:3 ~ “If you walk in my statutes and keep my commandments, and do them; I will walk among you and will be your God, and you shall be my people.
1 John 1:7 ~ “If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
The walk in which the Bible refers to is the discovery of the road of truth. The quest for truth is as old as the human race. Pilate asked “What is truth?”
  • Buddha followers say it is the teachings of Buddha.
  • Disciples of Confucius say it is observing the teachings of Confucius.
  • Devotees of the Prophet Mohammed say that Allah is god and Mohammed is his prophet.
  • BUT…the voice of Jesus Christ the Son of the Living God says, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No man comes to God except by me.
Psalm 86:11 ~ “Teach me thy way, O Lord, I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.
Three things about this spiritual walk: Second, this walk is a walk of faith.
Three things about this spiritual walk: Third, this walk leads home.
