The Upper Room 2nd March 2024 Devotional: Draw Near to God

Read and Study Today’s The Upper Room Daily Devotional for March 2, 2024 Message written by Juan Julio Báez (Dominican Republic). God bless you as you study today! Please share with your friends and loved ones.


TODAY’S READING
Romans 8:32-39

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Because of Christ, I can draw near to God.

Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. – Hebrews 4:16 (NIV)

I normally wear cologne, but I have had to stop. My daughter suffers from asthma, and we work in the same office. Her doctor advised her to avoid all perfumes and fragrances to minimize her allergies. She and I share a close bond, and her natural tendency is to give hugs often. So I have stopped using cologne.

Ephesians 5:2 says, “Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” As I made a small sacrifice for my daughter, I began to reflect on Christ’s sacrifice for us. Christ offered himself up on the cross to restore the lost bond between us and God. He relinquished all his glory and majesty so that we all could draw close to God. In accepting and doing God’s will, Christ received God’s blessing and recognition. Now he sits at the right hand of God as the connection that allows humankind to draw near to God.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Jesus, our Lord and Redeemer, we give you thanks for your sacrifice that made it possible for us to draw near to God. Your presence is the balm that adds fragrance to our lives. Amen.

PRAYER FOCUS
People with asthma
