Scripture: Hebrews 11:5

Hebrews 11:5 says, “By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, ‘and was not found, because God had taken him’ for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God.” Have we taught people to pursue the witness of the Spirit? Have we taught people to obey God until they get a witness that they please Him? This is an essential foundation for the Christian life. The issue is not whether or not we achieve what God has asked us to do. We see that at the end of Hebrews 11. The people who did not get what they believed for are right there with the ones that did. That is not the issue. The issue is that we never quit pursuing God and obeying Him. God wants a family that never stops pursuing Him. If we get what we are believing for, then we are blessed, but if we do not and continue pursuing, we are still blessed! Both qualify for Faith’s Hall of Fame. What is God after? He is after a family who desires to please Him and never stops pursuing Him. He wants a people who never stop pursuing Him. The issue is not whether we get what is prophesied for us to complete the assignment we are given or have to pass it on to a future generation. The issue is that we never stop pursuing Him and that we also make it a priority to please Him. The truth of Hebrews 11 has a lot to say about our attitude in the end-times. I trust we are getting it and diligently walking it out!
