By Faith We Walk With God (2)

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, Hebrews 11:5

"By faith Enoch was translated..."

Having a blessed fellowship with God: Do you feel bored and lonely because your heart is empty and your life is meaningless? No one and nothing in this world, not even human religions, philosophies, worldly wealth or pleasures, can satisfy your thirsty soul or fill your empty heart. "Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life" (John 4:13-14). The closer we walk with God, the more we enjoy a blessed fellowship with Him and are truly satisfied, "But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin" (1 John 1:7). God is the source of all blessings. So following Him we shall enjoy all His blessings and say,

"Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee" (Ps 73:25).

Having a good testimony to please God: "So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God" (Rom 8:8), and "without faith it is impossible to please him" (Heb 11:6). The closer we walk with God, the more God will be pleased with us.

Being caught up when Jesus comes: Enoch was taken up to heaven without seeing death. If we faithfully walk with God day by day and are still alive when our Saviour Jesus Christ comes again, we shall be caught up to meet Him in the air. "Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord" (1 Thess 4:17). Jesus has warned us to be watchful, for there can be two persons in one bed, or two persons grinding together or two persons in the field, "the one shall be taken, and the other left" (Luke 17:34-36). It is vital for us to be watchful and to maintain a personal walk with God day by day so that we will be caught up when our Lord comes.

THOUGHT: Do I truly maintain my personal walk with God?

PRAYER: Lord, keep me walking with Thee in Thy light each day.
