Enoch

Genesis, chapter 5, lists some of the descendants of Adam. One man mentioned is Enoch. Genesis 5:24 tells us about Enoch. “One day Enoch was walking with God, and he disappeared. God took him.” Hebrews 11:5 tells us about Enoch, too. This verse says God took Enoch because he had faith.

Enoch walked with God. Maybe Enoch really walked with God like Adam and Eve did in the garden. We do not know for sure. Some Bible versions translate these words, “Enoch pleased God.” Enoch must have been a very good man. And he must have had a close relationship with God. Enoch did not have to face death. God just took him from the earth.

It is very important that we please God. We please God when we obey Him. But before we can obey Him, we need to know what He wants us to do. We learn this by studying the Bible.
In the Bible we can learn about other people who pleased God. We should follow their example of faith and obedience.

Take time today to looks for ways that you can please God. Praise Him, pray to Him and share His love with everyone you meet.
