Just a Closer Walk with the Lord
And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.
+How can we have a closer walk with the Lord?
Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man LOVES me, he will KEEP my words: and my Father will LOVE him, and WE will come unto him, and make OUR abode with him.
ABODE: a place where someone lives or temporarily stays.
+A closer walk with the Lord starts with total and complete Love for God and Obedience to His Word.
THE BEST WAY IS TO DO THIS IS TO BE OBEDIENT. THEREFORE ,
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God”(Romans 12:1-2).
“Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not! Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For “the two,” He says, “shall become one flesh.” But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him. Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s”(1 Corinthians 6:15-20).
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.[1 John 2:15-17]
+May we continue to love and obey the Lord Intentionally, Purposefully, Deliberately and Consistently.
+And surely our lives will not only be an abode for the Lord but also a place where His Presence is Manifested.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our faith, trust and confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
