walking


In this week's Sunday school lesson we are encouraged to choose a person from the Hall of Faith (Hebrews 11) and study that person. How does the story of their faith journey challenge my own spiritual journey?

I chose Enoch. We know very little about Enoch.

Genesis 5: 21-14
When Enoch had lived 65 years, he became the father of Methuselah.
And after he became the father of Methuselah,
Enoch walked with God 300 years and had other sons and daughters.

Altogether, Enoch lived 365 years.

Enoch walked with God; then he was no more, because God took him away.

Hebrews 11:5
By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death; he could not be found ,because God had taken him away. For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.

How does Enoch challenge my spiritual journey? He walked with God. He had faith. He pleased God.


I do not want to be like Ahaziah King of Judah who 'walked in the ways of the house of Ahab and did evil in the eyes of the LORD' (2 Kings 8:27).

I want to be like Enoch.


To walk with God...to please Him...to have faith. This is my goal and my challenge.


"And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the LORD JESUS, giving thanks to GOD the FATHER through HIM." Colossians 3:17
