Build Up and Draw Near - Alex on TractorBuild Up and Draw Near” provides a summary of techniques for building up your spirit and drawing near to God through Jesus Christ.  James 4:8 (“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.”).  There is certainly more to learn, for me as well.  But these are things we can do every day, with an explanation of the Biblical principles that make them work.  James 1:22 (“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”).
