DAY 34: "Draw Near to God" (James 4:8-9)

Good Morning. Great is His faithfulness.


DAY 34: "DRAW NEAR TO GOD"


JAMES 4:8-9

Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9 Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom.

APPROACH GOD IN WORSHIP – (draw near) … Take special care to CLEANSE YOUR HANDS AND PURIFY YOUR HEARTS through repentance in preparation for worship – (vv. 8, 9) … “Never laugh off God’s call to mourn for sin … “

“The rewards for the toils of virtue are dispassion and spiritual knowledge … For these are the mediators of the Kingdom of Heaven, just as passions and ignorance are the mediators of eternal punishment … It is because of this that he who seeks these rewards for the sake of human glory and not for their intrinsic goodness is rebuked by the words of the Scripture: ‘You ask, and do not receive, because you ask wrongly” – (MaxCon) …


Numbers 6:24-26

“The Lord bless you and keep you;

25 The Lord make His face shine upon you,

And be gracious to you;

26 The Lord [a]lift up His countenance upon you,

And give you peace.” ’
