By faith, walk with God/ walk close to your God


1Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. 

2For by it the people of old received their commendation.

3By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.

4By faith Abel offered to God a more acceptable sacrifice than Cain, through which he was commended as righteous, God commending him by accepting his gifts. And through his faith, though he died, he still speaks. 

5By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death, and he was not found, because God had taken him. Now before he was taken he was commended as having pleased God. 

6And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.

Micah 6:6-8 
6“With what shall I come before the LORD,

and bow myself before God on high?

Shall I come before him with burnt offerings,

with calves a year old?

7Will the LORD be pleased witha thousands of rams,

with ten thousands of rivers of oil?

Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression,

the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?”

8He has told you, O man, what is good;

and what does the LORD require of you

but to do justice, and to love kindness,b

and to walk humbly with your God?


-how close do you want to walk with God, perhaps he will take you.

-dont grow weary

-if falling back check the list

-first step is to do it by faith
