Do you want to get busy living or to get busy dying?

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1 (NIV)

 

Enoch walked faithfully with God; then he was no more, because God took him away.  Genesis 5:24 (NIV)

 

By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death: “He could not be found, because God had taken him away.” For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Hebrews 11:5-6 (NIV)
