I am reading through the Bible this year and challenging my congregation, and all of you, to join me.
From the first two days readings two passages stand out to me:
Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden. But the LORD God called to the man, "Where are you?"
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.
What stands out to me here is that God comes to walk with man and when Adam does not show up He asks ,”Where are you?” In Chapter 5 The only information given about Enoch is that he walked with God, it says it twice, for 300 years and then God just took him.
That just wows me. I want to walk with God, God wants to walk with me. When I don’t show up His question for me is “Where are you Dan?” He knows where I am so I must not.
Like Enoch I want the defining characteristic of my life to be my relationship with God.
