God gives His people clear instructions through His Word on how we are to walk, how we are to work, and how we are to worship. He wants us to look more like Him and to live for Him, but the only way for that to become a reality is for God to help us learn more about Him. The closer we get to Him the greater the change He makes in our life.
God created us to walk with Him in fellowship and to experience the joy and fullness of life that only He can provide. Drawing near to God involves coming close to Him - just the way you wish to be with those you love. It is us learning to long for and to dwell in His presence.
