Enoch’s Pleasing Walk With God

By faith Enoch was translated so that he did not see death, “and was not found because God had translated him”; for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. But without faith it is impossible to please Him. (Heb_11:5-6)
It is the will of God that we learn to walk in a manner pleasing to the Lord: “that you may have a walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him” (Col_1:10). Again, such godly living can only be developed by faith. Much helpful insight into such a life is provided in Enoch’s pleasing walk with God, by faith.
Enoch was one of our earliest forefathers. “Enoch lived sixty-five years, and begot Methuselah” (Gen_5:21). After the birth of Methuselah (who became, at 969 years, the oldest man ever on earth), Enoch began a three hundred year long journey of close fellowship with God. “After he begot Methuselah, Enoch walked with God three hundred years” (Gen_5:22). After three centuries of spiritual intimacy, Enoch was taken into heaven without experiencing death. “And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him” (Gen_5:24). Enoch’s intimacy with God and his unique home going were related to a life of reliance upon the Lord. “By faith Enoch was translated so that he did not see death . . . for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.” Of course, what was so pleasing to God about Enoch’s walk was his trust in the Lord. “But without faith it is impossible to please Him.”
Enoch is a wonderful reminder of what life is all about — walking with God by faith throughout our days on earth, then walking right on into the presence of God in heaven someday. Many will eventually do this, like Enoch, without facing death. “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord” (1Th_4:16-17). Others may face death, but the key ingredient of fellowship on earth right on into heaven is the same. “I am continually with You; You hold me by my right hand. You will guide me with Your counsel, And afterward receive me to glory” (Psa_73:23-24).

Prayer
Dear God, creator of heaven and earth, I desire to please You by a life of faith here on earth. Help me to walk closely with You day by day throughout my pilgrimage here below. I eagerly anticipate the day that I will forever be with You in the fullness of Your glorious presence in heaven above, in Jesus’ name, Thank you Jesus. Amen.
