  • Don’t Plan Without God
    Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass. —Psalm 37:5Don’t plan without God. God seems to have a delightful way of upsetting the plans we have made, when we have not taken Him into account. We get ourselves into circumstances that were not chosen by God, […]
  • Sing Something Fresh

Draw near…

From the desk of the pastor:

James 4:8-“Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.” ESV

Do you desire to foster a more intimate relationship with God? Is the extent of your commitment like what is mentioned in…Isaiah 29:13-“And the Lord said: ‘Because this people draw near with their mouth and honor me with their lips, while their hearts are far from me, and their fear of me is a commandment taught by men,’”

Has your relationship with God dwindled to the point of being mere rote repetition leaving you unfulfilled? Do you feel like you are in a wasteland with nothing to feed your spiritual soul? Do you desire the heart of Paul as he said in…Philippians 3:10-“that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death,”

God desires for us to draw nearer to Him. He does not force us to tap into His limitless source of power and refreshment but waits patiently for us to come to Him. We are the ones who are holding onto sin, which keeps us from seizing this promise. May God grant us the ability to cleanse our hands and purify our hearts through the only One who can perform these transformations…‘draw near to God, and He will draw near to you!’
