Privilege


“Blessed is the one whom You choose, and cause to come near You. That one shall dwell in Your courts; we shall be satisfied with the goodness of Your house, of Your holy temple.” (Ps 65:4, ModernKJV)

What a gift that God draws us close to Him. He invites you to move closer to Him.

“Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.” (James 4:8a)

When you accept His invitation, responding with a “yes,” He honors you and graces you with His goodness, His presence. That’s a privilege.

God is the Creator, the King of kings, the Perfect One. He is altogether lovely, beautiful, powerful, and kind. He is just and good, merciful and faithful.

What a privilege to know Him. To hear His voice. To share your heart with Him and know He cares and listens and can help. What a privilege to begin to understand His love, His amazing goodness. What a privilege that He draws us close, if we are willing.

Are you willing?

If so, just say yes to Him. Read His Word (the Bible), surrender your life and cooperate as He sets you free through experiencing Him. Attend a Bible-believing, preaching, living church. Worship Him. Let Him love on you. Be ever thankful for the privilege of knowing Him, of being near to Him.
