Hebrews 11:5 – Pleasing Faith

Hebrews 11:5
5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

– In Hebrews 9:27 the Bible tells us that “it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment”.  One day we will all stand before the Lord and our lives will be judged.  It won’t matter how big our house was or how much money we earned.  Ultimately, it won’t even matter how many “good” deeds we performed.  The only question that will matter in that day will be “Did my life please the Lord?”  The answer to that question will determine your eternal destiny.  How do we please the Lord?  Fortunately, the Lord answered that question directly in Matthew 17:5, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.”  God’s Son, Jesus Christ, was always well-pleasing to the Father and by listening to His word, we can ensure that our lives are pleasing to the Father as well.
