Text: Genesis 5:21-24, 28-29
Vs 21-24 “When Enoch was sixty-five years old, he had Methuselah. Enoch walked steadily with God. After he had Methuselah, he lived another 300 years, having more sons and daughters. Enoch lived a total of 365 years. Enoch walked steadily with God. And then one day he was simply gone: God took him.”
Vs 28-29, “Lamech lived one hundred and eighty-two years and had a son. And he called his name Noah, saying, “This one will comfort us concerning our work and the toil of our hands, because of the ground which the Lord has cursed.”
The book of Genesis chapter 5 talks about the genealogy of Adam. And from the lineage of Adam, Enoch, and Noah were recognized. The Bible says Enoch walked with God for three hundred years. I’m sure that in His walk with God, he became a vessel in God’s hands. More reason he did not die as every man does, God Himself took Enoch at the age of 365 years.
The same thing with Noah, at his birth there had been a prophecy of whom Noah will become. And the preceding chapters gave us the life Noah lived on earth. It was a relevant one.
We all have been born not by cosmic accident but for a divine purpose. A steady walk with God will bring meaning or relevance to our lives. The life of a believer with no relevance to the Kingdom of God is a useless one.
In everything you do, be relevant to God’s kingdom. When something becomes irrelevant, it is tossed away. Just as when life becomes irrelevant to God, it is tossed away. John 15:1 — “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away.”
“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.” Revelation 3:15-16
