"Like newborn babes, long for the pure milk of the word, that by it you may grow in respect to salvation." 1 Peter 2:2 "It's a fact of life: our health declines if we don't nourish our bodies every day with food and water. That's true physically. It's true spiritually as well. If we neglect to regularly feed our souls on the Holy Scriptures, our faith becomes weak and we start to lose touch with our Savior. Growth is stifled... if it happens at all. Drawing Near, used daily in combination with God's Holy Word, can not only help bring you closer to God but also keep you from spiritual stagnation. This book will guide you in a growing relationship with Him. As Pastor MacArthur says in his Introduction: "Our entertainment-conscious, quick-fix, fast-food society does everything it can to divert us from setting aside time to study God's Word. As you well know from your own efforts, Bible study is not often entertaining—it's hard work. It takes discipline to set aside time each day to reap the benefits such study has to offer. If you reach an impasse when it's time to sit down, open your Bible, and try to decide what to do, you're not alone. Without some plan to follow, it's easy to become frustrated and eventually give up after only one or two days. That's where this book comes in." If you desire greater understanding of the precious Word of God, if you want a daily guide to draw you closer to the Lord, this outstanding collections of 365 devotional readings by one of America's most respected and trusted Bible teachers is for you!" "The Devotions were appropriate and relevant to the problems and decisions we all face in todays world. There are many devotionals that have wonderful stories that tie into a scripture verse, and it is quickly read, with very little time with God, and out to work we go, with very little spiritual nourishment." "This work by John MacArthur will provide you a healthy feeding every day. He is committed to an in-depth approach to bible exposition. And this book does just that, drawing from the main passages he has taught over the years. At the conclusion of the year, you will have gained a firm grasp of many of the great texts of the Bible. So while you are studying verse by verse through a passage, you'll find that each day stands on its own and makes direct application to your life."
