James 4: 8
In out text this morning, the first sentence is critical to the second. As followers of Christ, our desire is to please Him. The Bible says that is impossible to please God without faith. Well, where does faith come from? It comes from hearing God’s Word. To hear Him, we must be listening. The most consistent way we listen today is by reading His Word, and hearing His Word taught, and hearing His Word preached, and in a small group bible study. What an awesome promise God has given us. Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.. He is always waiting for you.
What is hindering you today? He loves you. He wants to spend a little time with you. And you need His help to please Him with your life… Why wait? Take some time today, and draw near to our Father in Heaven.
Verse 8 “Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.”
