    How can I get Closer to God and Jesus?

    Getting closer to God and Jesus is a process that is ongoing, not a specific act, and when you achieve intimacy with the Lord then you will be stronger and happier as a result. When you walk closely with God and have a strong committed relationship with him then all of the pieces of your life will fall into place. Below are the steps you need to take if you want to build a closer relationship with God.

    1. Read and understand the bible. Set aside time for this activity each and every day. As you start to learn and understand the word of god you will learn that god is calling you, and he has created this hunger for his word. According to Philippians 2:13 "for it is God that works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose." According to John 14:26 "But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you." Use context when studying the bible, reading the passages and chapters before and after each verse so that you understand the true context and meaning.

    2. Go to church regularly and stay engaged. Join a church, the denomination is not as important as the fact that the church speaks the truth, and attend services whenever possible. Actually listen to the sermons, take part in the services, and make an effort to reach out to others with the same beliefs and tenets. Discuss scripture with friends, family, and other congregants. Receive sacraments if your church and religion offer these, and know what the sacraments are before you receive them.

    3. Devote time to God each day. Set aside time for bible studies, prayer, meditation on god's word, debate on religious topics,and other spiritual activities that help you build a closer relationship with god. This is a process that requires daily effort on your part. Make god and Jesus part of your daily life and communicate frequently through prayer. Spend quiet time each day reflecting on verses of the bible and what they mean to you.

    4. Pray often. When you pray you are communicating with god, and building a better relationship. Pray several times a day, whenever you need guidance or you are going through hard times. Pray in thanks when things go well in order to show gratitude to the lord. Praying is your way of talking with Jesus and god, keeping the lines of communication open.
