Today’s 333 Devotional: “Faith Demonstrated Through Attitude”

“Enoch walked with God”

This phrase is repeated twice in the Genesis record, and the key is that he “walked” with God.

As a high school prom was approaching, one young man asked is father if he could borrow his 1963 Corvette. His dad said, “If you can improve one letter grade in each of your classes and get your hair cut, then I’ll let you borrow the car.”

A few weeks later the boy pull up all his grades, and so he went back to his father to show him and asked for the keys. The dad said, “Sorry son, but you didn’t get your hair cut.” Indignant the boy replied, “Come on Dad, even Jesus had long hair!” The father smiled and said, “Yes, and Jesus walked everywhere he went.”

Now, this isn’t the kind of walking the Holy Spirit had in mind. The term walk, as it’s used in the Bible, is synonymous with a person’s way of life. In other words, how you walk is how you live your life. Enoch lived his life in such a way that it was pleasing to God.

But what was it about his walk that made it so special? The clue might be found in the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Ephesian Church.

“Walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love.” (Ephesians 4:1-2)

Paul was saying that if we want to live a life worthy of someone who has been chosen by God and come into a saving relationship with Jesus, we need to have an attitude of humility, gentleness, patience, acceptance, and love.

The prophet Micah said, “He has shown you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you. But to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.” (Micah 6:8)

We’ll be looking at Enoch’s “Walk of Faith” this coming Sunday morning.
