How brightly do these words shine out in the sacred page! They beam out like a bright star in the midst of the dark histories of the Fall, "the way of Cain," and the wickedness of man, which ended in judgment of the flood. Let us write the sentence without a name: "And... walked with God." Look well at the blank, and pray that your name may be placed where Enoch's stood. The fruit of the Fall springs up on every hand; human wickedness hastens on to the judgment by fire; "the way of Cain" is popular. Seek first of all to walk with God. Man's brief history is well told in Gen. 5 "... lived... years... and he died." In the midst of the record of sin, and of life's vanity, how sweetly do these words shine—"Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him"!
