Walking With God

Long ago, the Old Testament prophet Amos asked, “Can two walk together except they be agreed?” (Amos 3:3). The obvious answer is “no”.  For two to walk together, they must meet and travel in the same direction.  

If we wish to walk with God, that is, have fellowship with Him, we must agree with God by acquiescing to His will.  God’s  way is the right way and a holy way; it leads to peace and eternal life (Psalms 23; Matt. 7:13).  We can walk with God no other way.

Enoch— A Man Who Walked With God

(Gen. 5:18-24Lk. 3:37Heb. 11:5Jude 1:14)

Only nine verses in the Bible mention Enoch, the seventh from Adam, but he is well remembered and well thought of by Bible students.  Enoch was the son of Jared and the father of Methuselah.  He lived three hundred and sixty - five years, but did not see death, for God took him, or translated him.  Enoch “walked with God” and had this testimony -- “he pleased God.”  What a great biography in few words.  When we have finished life, if it may truly be said of us that we walked with God and pleased Him, we will have done well.  The only thing that will matter in judgment is our relationship with the Lord.

   

Demas— A Man Who Chose To Walk With The World

(Col. 4:14Philemon 1:242Tim. 4:10)

Only three verses in the Bible mention Demas, but Bible students would do well to keep him in mind.  From these references we learn that Demas was once a “fellowlaborer” of Paul.  His salutations are given alongside of Luke’s.  What an honor to be counted among the faithful!  What a privilege to work in the kingdom of God!  What a great start to this Christian’s life story!  At the end Paul writes, “Demas hath forsaken me having loved this present world”  (2 Timothy 4:10).  He was numbered among the deserters.  There is no honor or glory here.  Peter said, “For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.  For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them”   (2 Peter 2:20,21).  What a tragic end to this short biography!

Dear Christian friend, do not let your story read the same:  a good beginning, a tragic end.  Persevere!  Remember, Demas's problem was that he loved the world.  We, too, are warned, “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.  If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him”  (1 John 2:15).

   

What Must I Do To Be Saved?

No question is more important than this. We make many important decisions in life regarding matters such as education, marriage, and occupation. But none is as transcending as that which affects our soul's eternity (Matt. 16:26).

"Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost?"

Luke 9:23-25
