Godly Generation 4 -They will Please God & Walk in close Fellowship with God

Here we have another Person who can be called a person who belongs to a Godly generation. His name is Enoch.

Heb.11:5 - “By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death; he could not be found, because God had taken him away. For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God.”

Gen.5:21-24 - “When Enoch had lived 65 years, he became the father of Methuselah. And after he became the father of Methuselah, Enoch walked with God 300 years and had other sons and daughters. Altogether, Enoch lived 365 years. Enoch walked with God; then he was no more, because God took him away.” (NIV)

In NLT its says – “When Enoch was 65 years old, he became the father of Methuselah. After the birth of Methuselah, Enoch lived in close fellowship with God for another 300 years, and he had other sons and daughters. Enoch lived 365 years, walking in close fellowship with God. Then one day he disappeared, because God took him.”

Now Enoch had an experience which no one else had in the history of mankind. Two things stand out in his account- He Pleased God & walked in close fellowship with God. He did not die but God took him away. I think that one day Enoch & God’s fellowship reached a point where God might have said to Enoch like this –“Come and stay with me. Let’s go to my house. I really enjoy the fellowship we have. Let me take you away from this world and we can talk and have fellowship whole day. So come up with me”. That’s my imagination but still I think that something similar to this might have happened.

Pleasing God and walking in close fellowship with him are two things which God always wanted from man. What was happening at Eden Garden? Every day God will come and have a time of fellowship with Adam & Eve. Then later God made friendship with Abraham. He used to share everything with Abraham. Jesus invited as to a close fellowship with him. In John 15:14-15, Jesus says that “You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.”

Are we serious about it? What a friend we have in Jesus. Still we run after the friends of this world and try to please them at the expense of our friendship with Jesus. Ask yourself a sincere question right now- Who is your best and closest friend in life? If the answer is Jesus then great. If it’s someone else in this world then review your priorities. Never give space and place in your life to anyone more than what you have given to God. Friends of this world may forsake you but Jesus will never leave you. In times of weakness, sickness, pain, loss etc friends may forsake us but during these times friendship of Jesus becomes more real in our life.

Let’s lead a life completely pleasing in God’s site and in close fellowship with God.

Remember that People who belong to a Godly Generation will not please themselves and run after friends of this world but will Please God and walk in close fellowship with God. They will have a day to day experience of walking, talking, laughing, crying & sharing their heart with God!

May God Bless You!

They do not Compromise

"They do not compromise with evil, and they walk only in his paths." Psalms 119:3 (NLT)

We are living in times when compromise has almost become the rule of life. But its not always called as compromise. Sometimes compromise is shielded under words like tolerance, patience, endurance, love for each other, respect for one another etc. Have you ever thought about it. Most of the time we compromise something or other in our life. There are times when you don't have any other way but to compromise.

But today I want to divert your attention towards things your compromise in your spiritual life. Compromise is a slow poison that ultimately destroys respect for truth. What does that mean? You start with small and end up compromising on big things. This is very much true with our beliefs and convictions about truth and doctrine. First thing we must check in our life that how strong we are in our beliefs and convictions. It will have a direct impact on the fact that how easily we co…

Increase in Wickedness - Love will grow cold

We are living in a time when wickedness has become a sort of style or fashion of the day. If we notice the news and keep track of the things happening all around us then we know that with each day wickedness is not only increasing but getting popular and accepted. What was in the list of wickedness few years ago is no longer there and has become accepted things. Its true with Christians also. Many things which are forbidden in the word of God is slowly creeping in and is becoming part of normal life. Tolerance is a good things but sometimes it can become dangerous in the sense that slowly it can make us cold. Last days I was meditating on a verse. Let me share it with you. Mathew 24:10-13:-

"At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved."
In these verses when J…

Moral Purity in a Corrupt World

We are living in the information age. People have so many ways to get connected to each other. With the wide spread use of Internet came the popularity of services like email, chat, social networking etc. In many cases, privacy of people is compromised as most of the information about a person can be found out with the click of a button. Sometime ago I was reading an article in a leading Journal as how people check social networking sites to find information about a boy or girl when some marriage proposals come. The downside of all this is that people have access to so much information and materials again at just the click of a button. Most of the things we get at the click of a biutton though is not beneficial. Many times it can becomes dangerous.

A common issue expressed by many young people is their addiction to Internet and especially to the filth which is available free of cost. It's free of cost at times but people forget that they are paying a heavy price in regard to destr…
