It is imperative that we draw near to God. However, it is up to us and the choices we make. We choose each day what we will do and what we will be a part of. The question is, “will we be part of things that draw us near to God or toward the world?” The church offers many opportunities to draw near to God. Coming to Sunday morning alone, worshiping God and enjoying the encouragement of the other Christians is great, but there are so many other ways. Steve talks about the classes we offer and also the different events we host. All these are to help strengthen and encourage each other and help us draw near to God.
