Adam’s grandson Enos and Name calling the Lord


Genesis 4:26 records the the birth of the grandson of Adam. In place of Abel who was slain by his brother Cain, God gave another seed to Adam and Eve and he was called Seth to whom was born a son named Enos. Enos means to call on the name of the Lord and interestingly the Bible records that after the birth of Enos, the men began to call upon the name of the Lord. Enos is mentioned in the genealogy of Jesus Christ (Luke 3:38), the one whom the people began to call upon.

Points to ponder:
Enos means to call on the name of the Lord. What is the name of the Lord? The angel announced and commanded Mary, that she was to call the name of her son, Jesus, for he shall save his people, from their sins (Matthew 1:21). In other words, to be saved, we must call the name of the Lord Jesus (Joel 2:32).  Are you saved i.e., Have you called on the name of the Lord?

Genesis 4:26 (KJV)
26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the Lord.
