The following are my notes taken during my pastor's sermon.

Scripture Passages:  Hebrews 11:5-6, Genesis 5:21-24, Jude 1:14-15
By faith Enoch was taken up so that he would not see death; and he was not found because God took him up; for he obtained the witness that before his being taken up he was pleasing to God.  And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him. - Hebrews 11:5-6

1.  God is pleased when we walk with Him.
Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him. - Colossians 2:6
Enoch lived sixty-five years, and became the father of Methuselah. Then Enoch walked with God three hundred years after he became the father of Methuselah, and he had other sons and daughters.  So all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years. Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him. - Genesis 5:21-24
Do two men walk together unless they have made an appointment? - Amos 3:3

Make a point to walk with God.  We are not forced.  Either we want to walk with God or we don't.  When we are in a relationship with someone, we walk with them and have conversations with them.  This should be our desire with God as well.

Take time for God. When we give the Redeemer our time, He will redeem our time.

Adam and Eve walked with God in the Garden of Eden.



2.  God is pleased when we witness for Him.
It was also about these men that Enoch, in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied, saying, “Behold, the Lord came with many thousands of His holy ones, to execute judgment upon all, and to convict all the ungodly of all their ungodly deeds which they have done in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.” - Jude 1:14-15
Our walk and our talk must agree.  We cannot walk with God and also in the world at the same time.

3.  God is pleased when He welcomes us home.

Precious in the sight of the Lord
Is the death of His godly ones.
Psalm 116:15
