Are You Walking With God?

…why do you suppose Enoch was so conscious of the ungodliness of his generation and so strong in preaching against it? It was because he walked with God. And what do you suppose was the result of his walking with God? Obviously a growth in holiness as a result of which he perceived the true nature of ungodliness. The two always go together. If you walk with God, you will be opposed to sin. But if you do not walk with God, sin will not seem to be so bad to you and you will inevitably accommodate yourself to it.

The Mind Of A Child

We received a package of letters from the Adelphi Missions Class today. Our kids loved looking at the pictures and decided to color some of their own. As I sat in my chair preparing for Sunday, Elizabeth began to randomly quote verses that we have been learning in our adult Sunday School class. We have been covering verses that are related to the Gospel and I guess I didn’t realize how well a child can learn even when it is what we would think is above their level. Elizabeth didn’t have it all perfect but she was able to mostly quote.

1 John 5:13

13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.


Ecclesiastes 7:20

20 For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.


Matthew 5:48

48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.


1 Corinthians 15:3

3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

I read this article some time ago and it has come across my path again. It has very much helped me and I thought I would share it here. The following article was written by a Chinese Christian named Watchman Nee. Nee’s most famous book is “The Normal Christian Life” which is a classic collection of his sermons.

The following article is a record of a message given on a Lord’s Day by Watchman Nee. It was original published in The Present Testimony, Issue No, 37, January 1, 1951.


2 Corinthians 5:7

7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

Matthew 17:1–8

1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,

2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.

3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.

4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.

5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

6 And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid.

7 And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid.

8 And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only.

Genesis 2:9

9 And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

Genesis 2:16–17

16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. (The tree of knowledge of good and evil can also be translated, “the tree of knowledge of right and wrong.”)
