Genesis 5 – Walking with God
What does it mean to walk with God? It means to live a life consistent with God’s will, to share close fellowship with God and to love God with all that you are. In this sermon Pastor David considers the example of Enoch, a man who Scripture says walked with God. David also explains the value of genealogies like Genesis 5 in which we read about Enoch.
Genesis 5:21–24 When Enoch had lived 65 years, he fathered Methuselah. Enoch walked with God after he fathered Methuselah 300 years and had other sons and daughters. Thus all the days of Enoch were 365 years. Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him.
Jude 14-15 Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His holy ones, to execute judgment on all and to convict all the ungodly of all their deeds of ungodliness that they have committed in such an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things that ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”
Hebrews 11:5-6 By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death, and he was not found, because God had taken him. Now before he was taken he was commended as having pleased God. And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who seek Him.
