The Nearness of God

James 4:8 makes an incredible promise to Christ’s people. “Draw near to me and I will draw near to you.” I have been stunned by the simplicity and glory of this oath made to us by God. What a pledge to his children. I have been holding this promise up to God recently and have been asking him to fulfill his gracious obligation. The nearness of God is a promise if we satisfy the condition of pursuing him.
