Do you have a dog? Aren’t they amazing? We don’t have one currently, but I was raised in a home with Miniature Schnauzers and Kerry Blue Terriers. They were basically members of our family.They would jump in our laps, on our couches, and on our beds without a second thought. They would gather around the dinner table with us every meal and beg for human food. When we would leave, they would sit by the door, or window, and anticipate our return. In coming back, they would rejoice and celebrate by jumping all over us, barking their heads off, and licking us in the face. I miss having a dog!But if you really wanted to get them excited, you’d simply have to say a magic four letter word: Walk. Mine even knew how it was spelled. This was what my dogs lived for. Maybe yours can relate. This is their chance to go outside, smell the fresh air, get some exercise, stretch those doggy legs, sniff around a little, and mark some territory. They can meet new furry friends and humans, chase birds and squirrels, and yank the owners around for a while.Have you ever gotten that excited for a walk before? Probably not. Neither have I. Maybe we should be. Not about walking our dogs, but walking with God.This Sunday we’re going to be studying Hebrews 11:5-6, which talks about an old man named Enoch on a walk with God. On the surface, that sounds about as boring as it gets. We don’t study the life of Enoch often, but when we look under the surface, dig into some history, his story comes alive and is incredibly exciting for us today. I hope we can all learn from his example, following in his footsteps as we grow in our relationships with God. There really is truly nothing better.I invite you to join us this Sunday- in person or online- as we look at the faithfulness of Enoch, and how his story can be an inspiration to us today.God bless you, have a great weekend, and I can’t wait to worship with you this Sunday, 10:15, at Christ Community Church.
