Draw Near


Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.  James 4:8


        Draw means to Come, which means to "Enter Into" something. 


God tells us to Draw Near to Him. 

          Draw near to God means to Enter into a Relationship with Him. 

        If you do this, Then God says He will Enter into a Relationship with you. This type of relationship is the very most beneficial to any person, both here on earth and after our body dies. Only God gives Eternal Life
