4 Ways to Get Closer to Jesus:
1. Read God's Word.
Yes, open up the Bible! We see that God and His Word are one of the same. And Jesus is the Word who became flesh and dwelt among us. (John 1:14)
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." (John 1:1)
Not only will reading God's Word bring you closer to Him, but it will also increase your faith in God. "So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." (Romans 10:17)
We are called to pray without ceasing. Jesus says that when we abide in Him and follow His commands He calls us His friends (John 15:15). Speak to God like He's your closest friend!
"Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.' (1 Thessalonians 5:17)
3. Worship and Praise God with Songs
Worshiping and praising is a way to get into God's presence. We can't enter into the presence of God if our heart is not thankful for all that He's done for us on the cross.
4. Surround yourself with people who love Jesus
Find a community that loves Jesus and spend time with them. You will see Jesus in them and you can all grow with God together. Community is powerful!
