Daily Fountain 2017 - Walking With God




Thursday May 11

Bible Reading:     Gen. 5: 21 - 32
Topic:         Walking With God

In today's passage, verse 2 says that Enoch walked with God and God took him straight to heaven without his dying.

This shows that Enoch was very intimate with God.

Walking with God means living for God, obeying God in all things, loving what God loves.

Sometimes we claim to love God and yet refuse to do His Will.

Walking with God also involves identifying with God in all circumstances - both in good times and bad.

There are some who claim to be Christians but only display their Christianity on Sundays during the Church service; however on other days, in their work places, market places, clubs and other businesses, they live as those who don't truly know God.

Their lives exhibit all forms of ungodly behaviour as Paul listed in Gal. 5: 19 - 21

Paul enjoins us to walk in the Spirit so that we will not exhibit those ungodly traits.

If we obey his injunctions, we will bear the fruits of the Spirit - joy, love, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control.

The Beauty of Jesus will be seen in our lives to the Glory of God.

Prayer:

Father in Heaven, please help me to walk in step with the Spirit, so that my life will please You and I may live in constant communion with You, Amen

Memory Verse:   Gen. 5: 24

"And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him"
