Welcome to church! Open Church is a weekly post that aims to be a place where Christians on Hive can hang out, encourage and build up one another, and reflect the love of Christ. The church is not a building, but is made up of people who have been transformed by God’s grace.
Each week I will be putting up a new post with a new topic or theme for discussion. But feel free to come here just to fellowship and be a blessing to one another. Whatever denominational background your from, or if you’re just curious about the Christian faith, everyone is welcome.
So feel free to share a link to your favourite worship song, share a word of encouragement, a prayer request, or introduce yourself.
Today’s topic is: How do you draw near to God?
Each one of us have different habits when it comes to our quiet times, prayer practices, and Bible reading habits. Each of us sense God’s presence in different ways, and we draw close to God through different means. Moreover, we are all wired differently.
Some of us experience closeness with God through singing praises to God, and some see God’s majesty and glory in creation. God also speaks to each of us in different ways.
So I want to hear from you about your devotional habits. How do you draw near to God each day? And how does God usually speak to you?
For some who are starting out in the Christian faith, I hope reading the experiences of others can help us grow in exploring different ways of drawing near to God in worship, prayer, reading the Bible and listening to His voice.
I look forward to reading your experiences in the comments below.
