Draw closer

James 4:8 KJV

Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

What are we waiting on? It is time to draw closer to God. Let us wash ourselves of everything that we know and what the word of God says is unholy. Our Father is a holy God and he commands us to be holy for he is holy!

Before the priests could go into the  sanctuary, they had to wash themselves and put on clean robes. We should go before God with a repenting heart. Hebrews 10:22 says, Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

Let us not straddle the fence, but make up in our minds that we will serve God always and keep our focus on Him. Let us draw closer to him day and night by taking the time to know him and become intimate with him by reading our word, spending time in praying, and by fasting.
