“Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him”
How is our faith walk with God? There are very few people in scripture that do not die. There is Christ, who died once for our sins but came back to life and now reigns with God. There is Elijah, the prophet of God, who was taken up in the whirlwind of fire. Then there is this man, Enoch. We do not know a lot about Enoch. We do know that He fathered Methuselah, the man to live the longest on earth (969 years), and he was Noah’s Great Grandfather. But what we see come out of this man’s life, in just seven (7) verses of Scripture is astounding. Enoch gave birth to Methuselah, then he walked with God for three hundred years before God “took him.” This man’s life took a radical change when his son was born. What could be more beautiful than the birth of a child?
So we ask the question: how is our faith walk with God? We cannot say that God is not showing us His beauty. We cannot say that we do not see God working. We cannot say God does not display His grace to all of us. Enoch Saw this as his son was born. So much that his walk with God to the point, “he was not.” Can any of us say that our walk is that close to God? Can any of us say that our lives look like that? Enoch was not just “playing the part,” Enoch was not just sitting in a pew one to three times a week. Enoch was living out his relationship with God. Enoch was daily seeking after God.
Is our daily life truly saturated with the Gospel of Christ, or are we just people who go to church? God calls us not simply to “go to church,” but to make disciples, to teach, to baptize, to lead people to the throne of God. Is that the life we are living? Does our life mimic that of Christ’s, or do we need to hit our knees so that God can use us?
