Genesis 5: 21 Now Enoch lived sixty-five years, and fathered Methuselah. 22 Then Enoch walked with God three hundred years after he fathered Methuselah, and he fathered other sons and daughters. 23 So all the days of Enoch were 365 years. 24 Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.

            This passage is easy to miss. But, if you take a moment and dig into it a little bit there is a lot here to understand. In the days of waning longevity following the disobedience of Adam and Eve Enoch stands out. If you doubt the longevity of the elders of that age you can readily observe the effects of the sin nature as life spans decreased the longer men were on the earth. But, look at Enoch. He walked with God.  Unique in his generation over a long span of time he loved God, revered Him and that last part, “Enoch walked with God and was not…” What on earth does that mean? Very simply that God took Enoch unto Himself because he loved him.            

Here comes the “So what”. God loved Enoch so much that it was right and fitting that he should be with God. For more than three hundred years Enoch had “walked with God”. For you and I with our vastly truncated life spans we have far less time to please God by our manner of life. But with Jesus’ help and forgiveness we may have the hope of one day being with God our Father in heaven.
