Walking the High Ground

“And Enoch walked with God: and he [was] not; for God took him”

The old-time evangelist, Dr. Bob Jones Sr., used to tell a heartwarming story in one of his sermons. A Sunday school teacher asked a little girl to describe Enoch’s walk with God. Said she, “Well..., first of all, it was an awful long walk (300 years). It was so long that God said to Enoch, ‘Enoch, we’re closer to my house than yours; why don’t you just come on home with me.’”

Some reading this article are just beginning their walk with God, others are somewhere in the middle; while others of us, like Enoch, can see the light in the window of God’s house. What an inexpressible joy it has been to walk with my Maker, Lord, Father, Friend, and God these many long years. In spite of my sins, shortcomings, doubts, fears, and a host of other frailties associated with being human, it has been absolutely marvelous strolling down Lover’s Lane with the Lover of my soul!

Far too many are attempting to occasionally walk on water with God who have not yet learned to walk daily with Him on land. I would encourage any and all, if you want a life filled with unspeakable joy, and filled with glory, to get in step with God. And then, stay in step. O, my friend, walk the high road. Some of you have been traveling the low road long enough.

Don’t worry about your soiled feet; He still humbles Himself to wash the feet of His followers!
