James 4:8 Come near to God and he will come near to you. You are sinners, so clean sin out of your lives. You are trying to follow God and the world at the same time. Make your thinking pure.

Do you yearn for a deep, intimate relationship with God? Has that relationship, amidst all the distractions that this world throws your way, eluded you from time to time? Is it a bit like a mirage in a desert? Then today’s message is for you … definitely for you.

A deep, rich, intimate fellowship with God changes you. Now, people may think me strange for talking that way. People may think you strange if you set your heart on an intimate relationship with God, but that’s okay.

I remember when I, as a tough, hardnosed, no-holds-barred, take-no-prisoners businessman, gave my life to Jesus and for the first time had a close encounter with God, the living God who sent Jesus to die on that Cross for me.

People thought, “What’s happened to Berni? Has he ‘got religion’? Did the Moonies get him? Has he gone nuts?” It’s not that I exhibited any weird or strange behaviour. It’s just that being close to God changes you profoundly. How can you not be changed?

There are so many people who hunger to be close to God and yet never discover that sort of intimacy with Him. It’s almost as though they’ve lost their way and don’t know how to get back.

Maybe it’s time for a close encounter.

James 4:8 Come near to God and he will come near to you. You are sinners, so clean sin out of your lives. You are trying to follow God and the world at the same time. Make your thinking pure.

Here’s the promise, if you draw near to God, He will draw near to you. And yes, absolutely … if you have some sin in your life that you know is interrupting your fellowship with Him, ditch it. You can’t have your cake and eat it too.

Come near to God and He will come near to you.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.

I love these audio teachings! I now have my husband listening with me before he goes to work in the morning. It’s the only way he hears the word of God.

I can’t always support you financially but I pray.. I thank God for these kinds of teachings that I can sneak into my husbands life. I know it helps him stay on track.

Thank you for the time and effort that goes into these. You are touching lives!!!
