Draw Near

Something to think about.

Draw Near

And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. Hebrews 11:6 (ESV)

Many people believe in God and therefore believe they will receive the blessings of God.  Having faith and no fruit is like having water and not drinking it. You must exercise your faith to please God in order to be blessed by God.  He who practices active faith to please God is the one that will receive the blessings of God. Active living faith is the only way to know God. If you want to know God and receive the blessings of God,  you must turn your faith into action.

About Ruben

I am the owner of a custom furniture shop in Orlando, Florida. I had a heart attack back in 2010. As a result of complications from the heart attack I almost died . The road to recovery took about eighteen months and even now I still have issues to deal with. As a result of almost dying many things have changed. Most notably my concept of time. By that I mean that I am acutely aware of my mortality, not morbidly but realistically. Before the heart attack I thought I would make it to 70's, 80'S or as my mother into 90's but now I realize everyday is a gift. I don't take it for granted. That is why I write I have something to say and I want to say it, before I can't say it anymore.
