Great Bible Leaders…Enoch

Enoch is not a great biblical leader because of the number of people the Bible mentions he led. In reality, there are no followers mentioned.

He is not a great biblical leader because he did not see death.

Enoch is a great biblical leader because Genesis 5 states he “walked with God.” Just saying those three words should make our hearts and minds race.

Every spiritual leader needs to be characterized by their walk with God. How powerful it would be if our eulogy were simply summed up as one who “walked with God.”

The beauty of Enoch’s walk with God is explained in the book of Hebrews. The text says; “by faith Enoch was taken up so that he would not see death…”

Reading the account in Genesis and Hebrews leads us to a powerful conclusion: Enoch’s walk with God was a life characterized by faith.

Examining the whole of Hebrews 11, with an application to leaders today, we find a walk of faith is one of seeking God, obedience to His word, and trusting in His providence to help us receive what is promised.
