How do we respond to the nearness of God?

August 24, 2022

How do we respond to the nearness of God?

But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ. 
— Ephesians 2:13 NIV


How do we respond to the nearness of God? Sometimes, I think we fear that He is all knowing, aware of our every shortcoming. Believing we are far too broken to be recipients of His grace and love. It can be very overwhelming to be human and become easily overwhelmed, frustrated and sad. Our flesh sometimes leads us to respond in ways we are not proud of and ways that do not reflect our Father. God's great desire for us is that we would recognize our need for Him. Without awareness of our weakness, we cannot understand His strength. If we do not understand our need for His strength, how would we accept it?

As Christ followers, we are given the gift of awareness of His nearness. When we fall short, when we are ashamed of our behavior, we get to run to Him and be better. The process of recognizing when we want to be better begins to happen more quickly as we learn to spend time with our Father, embracing His nearness. As a result, he saves us from the shame we would otherwise feel.

God invites us to recognize He is closer than our skin. He is all knowing and all loving. God desires to embrace you today and show you a way to better living. He invites us to a day marked by His peace and love.

 

Love y'all,
