There is so much advice on how to develop a personal relationship with Christ, but one thing is for certain, you won’t get anything accomplished if you don’t try any of the advice that is presented to you. I am going to give you three simple steps to draw nearer to Christ.
- Read Your Bible
This is how I was saved and filled with God’s Holy Spirit. Of course, I was going to church, Sunday school, and bible study, but God requires more than just the basics to draw near unto Him. Remember Moses? Although he was chosen by God, he still had to make a special effort to draw nearer to God so that Moses could receive instruction on how to lead Isreal, God’s people, to the promise land. Mount Sinai was the place where Moses received his wisdom knowledge guidance and understanding from God. If Moses being chosen by God had to make an effort so great, shouldn’t we do the same?
It’s easy to read about how to and why we should pray and get to know God, but often times it’s not until it’s too late or tragedy happens that we realize the importance of having a direct communication with God. Jesus loves you and I encourage you to learn just how much through prayer, fasting and reading the word of God.
