Amos 3, 3

1.  It is God’s purpose [that] man shall walk with Him.  As in the garden, and Enoch, the pillar of cloud & fire.  Christ & the Spirit.  All these emphasize His purpose.

2.  Who shall lead or direct?  Man?  Is he able and wise enough?  Then God must, for he is competent.

3.  What conditions are necessary?  An agreement by both:  then a steady adherence thereto by both parties.  When one breaks the contract the compact or partnership is dissolved.

4.  God demands only what is man’s highest good.  He is faithful always, fulfills His promises.

5.  The trouble is man’s lack of fidelity or his rebellion.  When man is true all is peace.

But how often when He is most needed man fails to look to Him.  Can man really afford to neglect to follow Him every day?

How much better that like Enoch one walk with Him in trustful obedience daily.  How wonderfully He helps the faithful soul!
