Draw near to God and He will draw near to you
The Closeness and the Otherness of God.
We can experience and adventure with God, a closeness and show Him our love through our obedience to Him.

In our adoption, we experience God's closeness, affection and generosity. We are challenged to grow in our awareness of God's real love for us as an adoptive Father.
