2015 Conference Series
Our loving heavenly Father promises to draw near to those who draw near to Him. (See James 4:8.) Drawing near to God is not an achievement we attain but a process of deepening a lifelong relationship with Him. As we “set our affection[s] on things above,” the things of this life fade to lesser importance in our hearts. Scripture states, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33). “Draw Near to God” is much more than just the theme of the 2015 Family Conferences. It is about being so much in love with Jesus that we cannot help but want to spend time with Him. God’s love sent His Son to the cross for mankind. When we experience the love of Christ that comes from knowing God, we will passionately enter into His presence, which will affect every area of our lives. May we all say with the psalmist: “When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek” (Psalm 27:8).
