Moving Closer to God

The closer we get to Jesus, the more we see of
His love!

 Through Christ, we turn from sin to His grace for forgiveness and mercy.

Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Heb 4:14,16)

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. (Matt 11:28-29)

We come to Him in prayer and lift up praises to Him.

Praise the LORD! For it is good to sing praises to our God; For it is pleasant, and praise is beautiful. (Psa 147:1)

I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.
(Eph 3:17-18)

We read, trust and apply His Word daily.

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

(2 Tim 3:16-17)

Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.

(Jam 1:22)

You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in Your word. (Ps 119:114)

In faith we lay hold of His promises and live in His strength.

Abraham did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform. (Rom 4:20-21)

My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.(2 Cor 12:9)

His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises.
(2 Pet 1:3-4)


May His perfect love meet all your needs today.

 Come near to God and he will come near to you.
James 4:8a
