Walking Humbly with God

Walking Humbly with God

One step at a time, forever

3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. 7 But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it… 11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up” 13 until we… become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. 14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. 15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the HEAD, that is, Christ. 16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.”

-Ephesians 4:1-16

3 Principles of Walking with God

1. Walk humbly

2. Walk humbly

3. Walk humbly

Sir Dr. James Simpson

Famous for inventing Chloroform.

Quoted as saying his greatest discovery was not anesthetics but rather, "That I am a sinner and that Jesus is a GREAT Savior."

2 “Be completely humble and gentle;

be patient, bearing with one

another in love.”

Walk with confidence but not swagger.

Nicolaus Copernicus

True Humility Involves a perspective of God

“I do not seek a kindness equal to that given to Paul. Nor do I ask the grace granted to Peter. But that forgiveness which Thou didst grant to the robber – that earnestly I crave!”

(Words by Copernicus for his own epitaph)

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 2 This is what the ancients were commended for... 5 By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death: “He could not be found, because God had taken him away.” [GENESIS 5:24] For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. 6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.”

–Hebrews 11:1-6

5 Altogether, Adam lived a total of 930 years,

and then he died….

8 Altogether, Seth lived a total of 912 years,

and then he died

11 Altogether, Enosh lived a total of 905 years,

and then he died….

14 Altogether, Kenan lived a total of 910 years,

and then he died

17 Altogether, Mahalalel lived a total of 895 years,

and then he died

20 Altogether, Jared lived a total of 962 years,

and then he died

23 Altogether, Enoch lived a total of 365 years.

24 Enoch walked faithfully with God;

then he [DIED] was no more,

because God took him away

27 Altogether, Methuselah lived a total of 969 years,

and then he died

31 Altogether, Lamech lived a total of 777 years,

and then he died.

32 After Noah was 500 years old, he became the father of Shem, Ham and Japheth.”

-Genesis 5:5-32

FAITH comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.”

-Romans 10:17

Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about them: “See, the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones 15 to judge everyone, and to convict all of them of all the ungodly acts they have committed in their ungodliness, and of all the defiant words ungodly sinners have spoken against him.”

-Jude vss. 14,15

Not only did Enoch spiritually

Walk with God

he literally

Walked with Adam

Q: Do you learn from those who are more experienced?

[Timeline shows that Enoch was alive while Adam was alive, so he could ask him directly about history]

It is natural to think of God’s blessings as being on shelves one “above” another. The taller we grow, the easier we can reach them.

But actually, God’s blessings are on shelves one “beneath” another. The more we bend down, the more we get.

Walking Humbly Always Looks to Jesus

You must WANT to walk with someone

if you are truly going to walk with them.

“Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so?”

-Amos 3:3

“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord

require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

-Micah 6:8

Karl Marx, the founder of Godless, Atheistic Communism at 17 in a Christian School wrote a beautiful Christian Essay.

To admit that you are wrong, is to say that you are wiser today than you were yesterday.

A sense of humor enables us not so much to laugh at those who offend us, as it does to laugh at ourselves for being so easily offended.

Take a vacation to Niagara Falls because you WANT to, not because you are TOLD to by someone else or God.

The number one person that will benefit from your “Walking humbly with God” is YOU.

“In your relationships with one another,

have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:

6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; 7 rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! 9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

-Philippians 2:5-11
