Walking with God

By Kevin Rhodes

In one of the most beautiful "biographies" contained within the pages of Holy Writ, Moses records, "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" (Genesis 5:21-24). For Enoch, walking with God was not an empty ritual or a few minutes of devotion here and there; walking with God was his life. It was a personal journey through the daily routines of life that kept God as his guide and companion. Such a life included marriage and family but these did not interfere with his walk with God; they were part of it. Enoch's walk with God was a lifetime adventure, growing closer to him each step of the way. Enoch was not old when God took him; he was quite young for his day. The end of life was also different than others, because it was God's action--not death (1 Corinthians 15:55)--that ended his earthly walk. What a wonderful life! May we all determine to walk with God today (1 John 1:5-7), just as Enoch did then, that we may join Enoch in his walk with God for the rest of eternity.
