Divisions:

1
4:25-5:8
God created Adam in His likeness, Adam died to 930, Seth fathered Enosh at 105 then men began to call on the name of the Lord.
Principle:
Since God created man in His likeness and Jesus is the incarnate form of God, men were created in the likeness of Christ.
God reached out to man when he formed him from dust.  Calling on the name of the Lord is one way man reaches out to God.
2
5:9-24
Enosh died at 905, Kenan died at 910, Mahalalel died at 895, Jared died at 962, Enoch fathered Methuselah at 65 and God took him at 365.
Principle:
Walking with God leads to spending eternity with God.
Believers who are alive when Christ returns will be taken like Enoch was.
3
5:25-32
Methuselah died at 969, Lamech died at 777, Noah was 500 when he fathered Shem, Ham and Japheth.
