"He walked with God"

Summary of sermon by Friedel Stegen, 29 Sep 2013

 

Gen 5

21 And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:

22 And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:

23 And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:

24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

Hebrews 11

5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

Enoch was an amazing man! He walked with God 300 years.

If you walk with someone then you are together, next to each other.

Here we find a man walking with God 300 years. We don't read of miracles he did, or his occupation, but only this amazing fact, that he walked with God and pleased God.

When we walk with God we want to do great works for God, but we read of none of that with Enoch. We always want to prove ourselves how we can work for God and how He can use us. Somehow we want to be in the limelight. If we don't experience that we get disheartened.

Seemingly he didn't look for great things, as we count greatness, but simply to walk with God and please Him in whatever he did.

What does your life look like? Is that the most important thing in your life to simply have unbroken fellowship with Him day by day, that there's perfect harmony between Him and you?

If you have a relationship with someone you're watchful not to disturb that relationship. You do what you do to please the next person, that your relationship with that person becomes better.

The greatest thing for any human being is to live in close fellowship with our Creator and not to disturb that relationship, always try to please Him, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

He gave His all for you and me. And that's why He has become the dearest person on earth to me. Whatever I do and say, my desire is that it will please Him.

We read in Hebrews that Enoch had this testimony that he pleased God. He not only walked with God but he pleased Him too.

We get upset if we cannot do something for God, but he was simply satisfied to please God and walk with Him.

It is good that you stop for a moment and ask God what your life is like? As a wife or husband do you walk with Him? Are you pleasing to Him? The way you speak to your wife and children and parents is it pleasing to God? Are you walking with God in whatever situation you find yourself?

Is this song seen in your life?

"He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!

He walks with me and He talks with me

Along life's narrow way.

He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!

You ask me how I know He lives:

He lives within my heart."

Jesus said He only did that which was pleasing to His Father. He always did His Father's will.

When we do God's will, we can't make our own decisions, but we have to listen to that voice of Him who gave His life for us. That we think as He does, make decisions as He does. That our reactions always be such that people see Jesus in us.

When they asked Jesus to show them the Father, He replied that the one who has seen Him has seen the Father also, for they are one (John 14:8-11).

God's word says that He will lead us into all the truth (John 16:13).

So many people say they don't know what to do in different situations, but it's because they don't listen. They must wash their spiritual ears, just as you do with physical ears when they need a proper wash from time to time. Sometimes you must even go to a doctor. So too if you don't hear the Lord's voice go to a spiritual doctor, a man of God, to find the cause.

Do the people who come into contact with you see Jesus in you? People don't read the Bible but they read our lives every day. What do they see in you?

When things are difficult and things go wrong do you walk with God in the way you talk, and the way you answer? You might concentrate on something and then people disturb you continually. How do you react and answer?

But Enoch walked with God, his actions and reactions were such as pleasing God for he could hear what God said.

We can learn the commandments off by heart but do we know how to apply them?

Jesus said many will say in the Judgement day "Lord we did many mighty works in your Name", but He would say to them that, "I know you not for you did not do the will of My Father" (Matthew 7:21-23).

It's so important that we do the will of the Father.

That's why the pharisees could not understand Him. When they brought the woman caught in adultery to Him and asked Him His verdict, He first kept quiet and wrote on the ground. He communed with His Father what to answer them and so He answered them,"the one without sin may cast the first stone" (John 8:4-7).

Do you see how important it is to always have an ear to hear what the Spirit of the Lord says. Jesus came to fulfil the law, by always doing the will of the Father.

Don't do anything in a rush. Ask God first. Wait upon the Lord.
