Commentary on this Encouraging Bible Verse

Are you desiring a closer relationship with Jesus?

Then this encouraging Bible verse serves up two critical elements.

We must first genuinely call upon Him. We must believe "that He is and that is a rewarder of those that seek Him." There must be no two-mindedness about His and His character, and we must genuinely, persistently, and frequently call out to Him.

Secondly, we must do so in truth, meaning in accordance with His character. We must have his glory in mind, His motivation, His desires mixed with ours. We must call upon Him as He is, not as we hope Him to be.

We must call on Him in righteousness, goodness, holiness, and truthfulness, and to act in keeping with these traits.

When we do, we fill find that you will draw close to God.
