    John Piper Devotional 2018 - God’s Will Is That You Draw Near

    God’s Will Is That You Draw Near

        Let us draw near with a true heart. (Hebrews 10:22)

    John Piper Devotional 2018

    John Piper Devotional 2018

    The command we are given in this passage is to draw near to God. The great aim of this writer is that we get near God, that we have fellowship with him, that we not settle for a Christian life at a distance from God.

    John Piper Devotional 2018 -God’s Will Is That You Draw Near - Saturday, January 6, 2018

    This drawing near is not a physical act. It’s not building a tower of Babel by your achievements to get to heaven. It’s not necessarily going to a church building. Or walking to an altar at the front. It is an invisible act of the heart. You can do it while standing absolutely still, or while lying in a hospital bed, or on the train as you commute to work.

    This is the center of the gospel — this is what the Garden of Gethsemane and Good Friday are all about — that God has done astonishing and costly things to draw us near. He has sent his Son to suffer and to die so that through him we might draw near. It’s all so that we might draw near. And all of this is for our joy and for his glory. STANLEY 2018

    He does not need us. If we stay away he is not impoverished. He does not need us in order to be happy in the fellowship of the Trinity.
    But he magnifies his mercy by giving us free access through his Son, in spite of our sin, to the one Reality that can satisfy us completely and forever, namely, himself. “In thy presence is fullness of joy, at thy right hand are pleasures forever more” (Psalm 16:11).

    That is God’s will for you, even as you read this — that you will draw near to God.
