It seems like a lot of Christians are lamenting the lack of closeness they feel with Christ these days. I can’t count the times I’ve heard it, and the same always seems to be true. These wavering souls have wondered away from the truth and many of them seem to be blaming God for their troubles. His Word says this will happen when we befriend the world instead of Him. Turn back friends. Christ is still the Truth, and He’s right where He’s always been… Just reach out your hand and call His precious name!
“You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.” James 4:4
“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double minded.” James 4:7-8
