Hebrews 11:5 NLT It was by faith that Enoch was taken up to heaven without dying—“he disappeared, because God took him.” For before he was taken up, he was known as a person who pleased God.

Enoch was known for pleasing God?

What are you known for? Are you known because of your profession, because of your cooking, or because of your demeanor? Are you known for being a trouble maker, being a negative person, or a loud mouth?

As believers, we want to be known for things that reflect the character of God. What traits define the character of God? Loving, forgiving, friendly, giving, extending grace and mercy, peaceful, honest and more. Whatever the scriptures say about God, in context, is what we should be striving to be known for.

We may have been known for something negative in our past, but displaying the characteristics of God consistently can change people’s views of us. Be known to reflect the character of God.
