Adam hears God walking in the garden, and cowers at God’s presence, he knew what he’d done. He knew the relationship they once had, Adam had sullied. Enoch, though, walked with God. And he was not, for God took him. Enoch knew how to walk with God. It would seem there is an expectation, a design characteristic, inherent within man, that man should be walking with God. “Walk” implies movement, action. “With” implies cooperation, submission. Man was made to be in synchronous action under the direction of God.
Over the years, my dog has picked up on subtle signs of a soon coming walk. She’s even learned the word “walk”, upon hearing it she explodes into a sprint for the door. Who can be blamed for me not walking with God or even knowing how to walk with God, when God is standing at the door saying, “Walk with me. Walk with me… Please, walk with me?”
