Be a friend of God


Be a Friend of God

James 2:23

          It is obvious some people are closer to God than others. These "close friends" of God speak of talking to Him as if they know Him personally. Their faces shine with enthusiasm as they testify, "And God told me….." while skeptical acquaintances grumble to themselves", Well, God doesn't talk to me like that!"

          Why is that? Does God have favorites? No, Scripture teaches that each person determines his or her own level of intimacy with God, depending on their willingness to seek Him and put time into developing a relationship with Him. Everyone has been extended the same open invitation to "fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace" (Hebrews 4:16). At this moment, you are as close to God as you choose to be.
