What Does it Mean to Walk With God?

Before answering the question of what it means to walk with God, we will first look at two passages of Scripture that speak of Enoch the seventh from Adam, a man who walked with God before the flood of Noah.


Genesis 5:22,24 “And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah … And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.” Hebrews 11:5 “By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.”


The Scripture says Enoch walked with God. The book of Amos asks the question, “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” Enoch was able to walk with God because he believed in God, he trusted in God, he agreed with God, he obeyed God, he lived a life that pleased God. And although the whole world was at that time as corrupt as might be, yet Enoch continued in holiness.


What does it mean to walk with God?


To walk with God is to pray and read the Scriptures daily. To walk with God is to lead a life according to his Word. To walk with God is to live an upright and godly life. To walk with the Lord is to keep his commandments, to walk in his statutes, to obey and serve, to believe and have faith, to do his will, as seen in the lives of the prophets, apostles, and other godly people.


To walk with God is to have fellowship with him which requires obedience, for the LORD said of his people, “this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you”.
