James 4:8 "Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you." I have a friend and his name is Paul, He is 95 years old. I met with him the other morning on a bench outside the church where we are members. It was a beautiful morning. He had called me and asked me to pick up a couple of books that he wanted to give to others to strengthen their faith. This I did. While we were sitting and talking I noticed something that never changes with him whenever I talk to him. His passion to be in Christ.......and Christ in Him. His passion to know Christ more and to bring others to Christ. Paul seeks for what is now and for what is eternal. Most of us want to be or do our best in whatever we pursue. Are we spending any or enough time pursuing Christ? God sent His only Son to die for our sins. God is constantly pursuing us, but God has given us a choice to pursue Him or not to pursue Him. What choices are you making?
