Walking With God, Part 2

Walking With God, Part 2

Walking with God is a life of fellowship with God. The word fellowship means partnering, participation and sharing communion. For 300 years Enoch walked in intimate fellowship with God. This means his life was characterized by partnering with God, participating in and sharing communion with Him. He agreed with God in all areas of his life, because as we read in Amos 3:3, two can’t walk together unless they agree.

For us to walk in fellowship with God we must agree with Him about the only thing that breaks our fellowship with Him, namely, our sin. In 1 John 1:6 says, “If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth.” (NIV) We cannot walk in darkness (sin) and at the same time walk with God. Does it mean that Enoch was sinless? Not at all! It simply means that he had “God’s-view” of his sin. He saw it as God saw it and dealt with it as God would have him deal with it.

Is there any sin in your life that you have not made right with God? Don’t try to deny it or conceal it or excuse it. Instead, confess it to Him (1 John 1:9) and repent (turn) from it. Confessing sin is more than just admitting your guilt; it is saying the same thing about your sin as God says. The result of true confession is turning away from the sin to God’s way of life. True confession always leads to true repentance (forsaking the sin).

Remember, your sin is the only hindrance for walking in close fellowship with Him.

Are you walking with God or merely living?
