In the story of "Little Red Riding Hood", the wolf asks for her to come closer. As readers of the story know, the wolf didn't have good intentions. We may sometimes feel the same way when people want to get closer or too close. However, we never have to fear when we get closer to God!
God wants to have a relationship with each and every one of us. He also wants what is best for us. For our relationships with God to grow, we need to move closer to Him. We can come closer by becoming purifed, which we can only do through accepting Jesus Christ. With Jesus as our Savior, we can purify our hearts and minds. We can be cleansed of our sin. We can then move closer to God and the glory and blessings that only He can provide!
Accept Jesus, move closer to God, and accept His blessings!
Thank You for allowing me to be close to You. Help me to continue to be closer to You. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
