But the thing I believe He wants me to share with you today is quite simple.
As most of you know, I read the One Year Bible for my devotional time. Today we're in Leviticus for the Old Testament.
Leviticus 9:7a (ESV)
Then Moses said to Aaron, "Draw near to the altar and offer your sin offering and your burnt offering and make atonement for yourself and for the people."
This was the first verse I read this morning and I just couldn't move on from it. Perhaps I was thinking about the chorus from that old hymn by Frances Crosby:
Draw me nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
My sweet friends...
Today, I hope as you file into church, and find your place in His sanctuary that you do more than just sit and soak - but that you actually do as Moses commanded Aaron and DRAW NEAR.
