Read and study your bible. Pray always in all things. Give thanks even in the bad situations. Make supplications for those in need. Help others when you can both Christian and unbeliever. Share the gospel and testify in Christ's name. Labor for the Lord even in menial things. Learn to be gracious when suffering in the name of the Lord. Get together with the saints as much as possible. Always be ready to forgive. Repent of personal sins. Sing hymns and spiritual songs. 


If you continue to abound in these things God will shed his grace and love in you heart through his Holy Spirit in the name of his dear Son.



Spend time with Him. Mark 1:35 And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.


Think about Him. Psalms 63:6 When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.


Serve Him. John 6:27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.


Realize what He’s done for you. John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.


Tell others about Him. Matthew 22:9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.


Read His Word.  Psalms 119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.


Inevitably you’ll love God more by scheduling theses activities into your life. Much more could be discussed, but these things came to mind first.

Keep your focus on God.  Pray without ceasing.  Stay in the Word.  Be still and listen for His still small voice.  The more you do these things the closer you will get.  But you have let Him be the main focus of your life.  Be willing to forgive and to love even your enemies.  Don't let anything separate you from Him.  Sin will separate you from God.  We all have sinned and fall short of His glory. 

Bible study, prayer and fasting.  These things will increase your faith which will bring you closer to God.
