The Scriptures Teach Us How to Walk (Genesis 5:21-24)
1. In these verses we read about a special man named Enoch. a. He was the father of Methuselah. b. His days on earth were 365 years. c. According to vs.24, "he was not; for God took him" (this is explained further in Hebrews 11:5). d. Please note that it is stated twice that "Enoch walked with God." 2. From Enoch we learn about the importance of walking in a way that pleases God (Romans 15:4). 3. In our lesson we are concentrating on the fact that "the Scriptures teach us how to walk."
I. IN ROMANS 6:3-7 THE BIBLE EXPLAINS WHEN WE ARE ABLE TO "WALK IN NEWNESS OF LIFE"
II. AFTER BEING BAPTIZED INTO CHRIST,:
A. We are to walk "in the fear of the Lord" (Acts 9:31). B. We are to "walk honestly" (Romans 13:12-14). C. We are to "walk by faith" (2 Corinthians 5:6-9). D. We are to "walk in the Spirit" (Galatians 5:16, 25). E. We are to walk in "good works" (Ephesians 2:10). F. We are to walk worthy of the vocation by which we are called (Ephesians 4:1-3). G. We are to walk "in love" (Ephesians 5:1-2). H. We are to walk "as children of light" (Ephesians 5:8-10). I. We are to walk "circumspectly" (Ephesians 5:15-16). J.

1. Physically speaking, walking is good exercise. 2. Spiritually speaking, walking as the Scriptures teach [godliness] is much greater. 3. Let us remember and practice this faithful saying (1 Timothy 4:8-9).
