Draw Near


Then the LORD instructed Moses: “Come up here to me, and bring along Aaron, Nadab, Abihu, and seventy of Israel’s elders. All of you must worship from a distance.”- Then Moses, Aaron, Nadab, Abihu, and the seventy elders of Israel climbed up the mountain. There they saw the God of Israel.
Exodus 24:1,9 (NLT)

In today’s passage we see that Moses was invited by God to bring three select people plus the seventy elders to a mountain and worship Him. When they went, even though it was a distance, the Bible says, “There they saw the God of Israel.” A theme throughout the Bible is man’s pursuit to have communion with God and God’s pursuit of having a relationship with mankind. We see this over and over again in scriptures. God is relational and He desires a relationship with you. In His book, Hearing God, Dallas Willard writes, “First, however, it is worth reminding ourselves to read the biblical accounts as if what is described is happening to us. We must make the conscious to think that such things might happen to us and to imagine what it would be like if they were to happen.” Moses fellowshipped with God. So did David, Paul and the Apostles. You can do the same thing. Today, hear God calling to you, “Come here to me.”

Father, I come now to worship You. Help me sense Your presence. Draw me close to You I pray. In Jesus’ name.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
