Passage: Hebrews 11:6

How did Enoch walk with/please God (v. 5)? How can we walk with/please God? By faith

In the 2 statements about faith (v. 6), we can see 4 realities about God that we are to have confident and assured knowledge of:

1) We acknowledge God's existence: "He exists."

  • God is real
  • God is present with us

2) We meditate on God's character: "He exists."

  • If your thinking about God does not match his character revealed in the Bible, then you’re worshipping an idol.

3) We accept God's posture toward us: "He rewards" not "He condemns"

  • By faith in Christ we are pleasing to God.
  • Without faith in Christ we are still in our sin and remain condemned.

4) We enjoy God's promises: "He rewards those who seek him"

  • God does not repay according to our works
  • God does reward
  • Ultimately, God himself is the Reward

As we believe, we draw near to God in prayer and worship.

Conclusion: In Christ, we have the privilege of a restored relationship of loving fellowship with God. By faith, we can live a life that is pleasing to God, as Enoch did.
