Come Home With Me Tonight

File4

We know very little about Enoch, except that he was a man who walked with God.  One day, he simply did not return to his earthly home.  He literally disappeared into the cosmos.  Abby likes to say that, at the end of the day, Enoch was closer to God’s house than to his own.  God said, “It’s a long way back to your house.  You might as well just come on home with me tonight.”

What a powerful story this is in its brevity!  Enoch and God enjoyed a relationship  similar to the Garden relationship of God with Adam and Eve, yet without the fracture of intimacy.  Imagine how thrilling it would be to walk right out of this world and into God’s eternal presence! 

I wonder how greatly such a man would be missed by his family and his friends, and yet they had no doubt where he had gone.  What a wonderful testimony he left.  To live in such a way that there is no question about where we go when we leave this life, that is the ultimate legacy of a saint on safari.
