“It is good for me to draw near to God” (Psalm 73:28 NKJV). 

God created a garden paradise for the first humans, Adam and Eve. The couple broke God’s one rule---which He warned would kill them [spiritually]. Their sin alienated them from God and contaminated the world. 

Though Adam and Eve sinned, they were still God’s beloved children. However, disobedience separated their intimate relationship---they were far from God.

God’s wrath, which should have been ours, was poured out on His Son to pay all mankind’s sin debt. Jesus bore a ghastly crucifixion and was marred beyond human recognition (Isaiah 52:14) that we might live. Forever. 

God’s requirement: a sinless Lamb’s blood atonement for the sin-sick world. Therefore, we are granted an undeserved privilege of drawing near God’s grace-throne and finding mercy (Hebrews 4:16). Father God’s plan of salvation was the only way for us to be near Him “But now in Christ Jesus, you who were once [so] far away, through (by, in) the blood of Christ have been brought near” (Ephesians 2:13 Amplified).
James, a brother of Jesus (Mark 6:3), admonishes us to seek God above all else “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” (James 4:8 NKJV). 

“I am thine O Lord; I have heard Thy voice, and it told Thy love to me. Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord to thy precious bleeding side” Fanny Crosby 1874
