let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Hebrews 10:22 (NIV)
I am calling you to come to me. I have broken down barriers. I have removed every separation. I have forgiven your sins. I have cleansed you of all your unrighteousness. You have been washed by my blood. You have been made fresh and new and clean in my sight. I have made it possible for you to draw near to me. I will draw near to you. You can leave your old life behind. You can begin to live the new life that I have called you to live. I will welcome you to me with my arms open wide. I will celebrate your return to me. There will be rejoicing in heaven when you begin to live your life with and for me. Do you hear my call? Will you turn around? Will you follow me to where I lead you? Will you do what I ask of you? Yes Lord, I have heard your call. Yes Lord, I will turn my life around. I will follow you to wherever you lead me. I will do whatever you ask of me. I am all yours. I am at your service. I want to live my live with and for you. That will be very good.
How will you draw near to me? When will you draw near to me? Where will you draw near to me? Why will you draw near to me? I will start with that last question. I will draw near to you because you loved and gave yourself for me. You paid a high price so that I could be forgiven of all my sins and cleansed of all my unrighteous. You showed me your kindness, mercy and love when I did not deserve it. I now love you because you first loved me. I want my life to be a continual practice of drawing near to you. I want to live in an ongoing and intimate relationship with you. When will I draw near to you? I will draw near to you at set times. I will also draw near to you as you lead me moment by moment through life. Where will I draw near to you? I will set apart a special place to draw near to you. I will also draw near to you anywhere and everywhere you lead me. How will I draw near to you? I will draw near to you in worship and prayer. I will draw near to you in your word. I will draw near to you in giving and service. There will not be one area of my life in which I will not draw near to you. That will be very good.
Lord, thank you for forgiving my sins and cleansing me of all my unrighteousness. Your blood has washed me and made me thoroughly clean and completely acceptable to God. Help me to consistently draw near to God with a sincere heart that is full of faith. Amen
