This past Sunday morning, I was speaking with the jr high kids about how God hears us when we cry out to him and how we will send help and aid. We talked about how the Exodus story is analogous to the larger story of redemption found in Christ – the suffering, the crying out and the redeeming through a new priest! That was presented to show them the macro level story that is going on, and has been going on for some time. On a micro level, however, it still holds true. Yes, even in your daily life. For instance
8 Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world. James 4:8 New Living Translation (NLT)
Today, take a step nearer to God!
