Most people that I know want to live a good life. Most people want to have a peaceful life, void of strife and trouble. Most people want to feel joy and contentment in their life. But in today’s world sometimes these seem like impossible goals. But, there is good news!
Today at East Point the choir sang the well-known hymn, “Near to the Heart of God.” This song reminds us that when we draw near to God we can have quiet rest, we can have safe protection from the world of sin. We can have comfort as we commune with Jesus and receive His peace and joy. What a blessing!
So, how do we get to this place that is near to the heart of God? Well the first step is to accept Jesus as your Savior. Romans 10:8-9 tells us how to do this. “Confess with your mouth that, ‘Jesus is Lord’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead and you will be saved”. Next let God take control. Let His joy and peace flood your life and bring the changes that He has for you.
Every day still won’t be perfect, but with God near to you, the burdens will be easier to bear and joy that you never thought possible will fill your heart.
