Drawing Near to God through His Word

What an awesome privilege it is to have the written Word of God, the Bible!


Probably the single most important thing we can discover within its pages is our personal relationship with God Himself, Jesus. Out of this relationship comes meaning and purpose for our daily lives....Most of us would agree on this.


However, for many of us, the demands of daily living or our own desires and weaknesses, and yes, even our enemy the devil and his schemes, have drawn us away from God. 

Soon we find God has taken 2nd or even 102nd place within our lives....There is hope!


God restores us and offers us a new, transforming life if we will simply draw near to Him.

Cultivating Our Relationship

In January, we will begin a churchwide Bible Reading Journey starting with the Gospel of Luke. Our desire, is for us as a body of believers to cultivate our personal relationship with Jesus through His Word together.


Before we begin, we believe that it is good to stop for a moment and reflect on our current Bible reading habits and understand where we really are. For some, time in God's Word may be the highlight our day while for others it may not be but, is necessary, to keep us moving forward into the life God has for us.


We would like as many of you as possible to answer a quick questionnaire to help you and us collectively assess how our Bible reading was in 2019.


Don't worry, you do not have to provide your name or email address but we do need your honest answers. Thanks in advance for your participation!

First Steps

Living the spiritual life does not come natural to us. It can only be done through the power of the Holy Spirit within our lives and the exercising of our faith with action.


Take some time to simply stop and ask God for help. Draw near to Him. Ask for new spiritual eyes and ears. Empty yourself as best as you can. Ask Him to reveal Himself to you as you read His Word. 

 

James 4:8 gives us a promise, an exhortation, and speaks directly to our hearts.

Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. James 4:8 NASB


First Step = Humble yourself before God and ask for His help.

Second Step = Go to our Bible Reading Resource page and in faith....take a faith action step!
