.drawing close to God.

"So humble yourselves before God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  Come close to God, and God will come close to you.  Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world.  Let there be tears for what you have done.  Let there be sorrow and deep grief.  Let there be sadness instead of laughter, and gloom instead of joy.  Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor." 
James 4:7-10

.drawing close to God.  This passage tell us how we can get close to God.  James gives us five ways to get closer to God and have a relationship with Him.  First, we need to submit to His authority.  Second, we need to resist the devil and his temptation in our lives.  Third, we need to live a pure life.  Fourth, we need to be truly sorry for the sins we have committed.  And lastly, we need to humble ourselves before the Lord.  Are you growing closer to God?  Try these to have a true relationship with Him.  .submit yourself to Him and draw closer to God.
