"Enoch Walked with God" II Scripture Reading: Hebrews 11:5; 12:1-2 Memory Verse: Hebrews 11:6 "But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him." Song: "O Master Let Me Walk with Thee" Of all the names on the list of heroes of faith in Hebrews 11 we know less about Enoch than any of the others. A single statement of only four words, "Enoch walked with God," was powerful enough to propel him on to the list of major examples of faithfulness. Hebrews 11:5 says the result of Enoch's faithful walk was "he pleased God." The reader of Hebrews is immediately challenged to imitate Enoch with the words, "without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him." The fact that the word "walk" occurs 65 times in the New Testament (KJV) is very important for the Christian. It is found in the gospels 19 times: 15 of those times refer to the physical act, 4 times refer to a way of life. In Acts through Revelation it occurs 46 times and only 3 times it refers to the physical act and 43 times it refers to the way one lives. Hebrews 12:1-2 gives the value of the story of Enoch as he walked with God (and the others on the list in chapter 11) to Christians as they: Turn from sin Persevere in their service to God Serve Jesus, especially in time of difficulty Prayer: Father in Heaven, we seek to live lives that are faithful to your guidance. We thank you for showing us the example of Enoch as he walked with you by faith. In Jesus name, Amen. Thought Questions: How do the examples of people who were faithful to God help me in my walk with Him? Am I walking by faith? How can I please God?
