When holy living is discussed, there seems to be so many people who automatically jump in and want to call you a heretic to even think this is possible. Throughout the whole Bible God is against sin, and for our own good, wants us to stop sinning. Mind you, this is through the whole Bible! There is no such Gospel as a “Sin Gospel.” These people don’t know anything about true repentance and holy living. All they can do is argue in favor of sin. Contrary to popular opinion, it is not impossible to “walk with God.”
Can anyone accuse Enoch of sinning? Where does the Bible list his sin or sins? During Enoch’s time, his world was characterized by sexual perversion and violence. Doesn’t that sound like today? Even in the midst of violence and sexual perversion, we can walk like Enoch did. Enoch did not “walk with rules,” he “walked with God.”
“Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?” (Amos 3:3) Enoch did not walk with God and hold hands with the world.
Enoch’s life was a testimony to the people around him because he walked with God and this pleased God (Heb. 11:5). Like Enoch, when we walk with God, we please Him. It pleases God when we walk uprightly (Ps. 84:11; Prov. 2:7). It pleases God when we endure sorrows while suffering unjustly (1 Peter 2:19). Jesus gave us His example so that we might follow in his steps. (1 Peter. 2:21) Jesus pleased His Father. (Luke 3:22)
Witnessing for God does not necessarily mean we have to be in the streets every minute of the day preaching the Gospel. There are some members in the body of Christ with that ability. No matter who you are, if you are in Christ, and walking with God, you have a testimony and a witness. Be sure that people are watching you and observing your every move, because they will not be convinced by what you say, but how you live by what you say. No one can be an effective witness for God until they first walk with God.
