Good afternoon! Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Today we are testing ourselves with God's definition of far.
Acts 17v27 God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each on of us.
I believe there is a "naked man", which is a fearful man that reveals His ignorance, in all of us, along with a King that shows His wisdom of living out God's love to God's glory in Heaven. This fight between the spirit in a man that shows his ignorance, "the naked man" and the Spirit of the King that shows God's wisdom continue to fight within us, but the Holy Spirit in the man will always prevail! God created all of man kind from one man, he placed them in the time where they were to be born and the place where they should be born. We have no choice about those two options in life. Where and from whom we come from. Everyone is placed in their environment and with whom, for everyone to call out to Him. We were made for us to call out to Him and seek Him and perhaps find him even though He is not far from any of us. I believe the far is not far at all, because I believe He is within each one of us waiting for us to need Him and call on Him and find Him. He is waiting at the door when we open it! Our hearts is the door we have to open. When we receive the love He has for us then our hearts will always open the door, we are made for His love to fulfill us like no other love on this earth, our true hearts will always open for Him. In the past before our Lord and Savior appeared God over looked our ignorance in believing other gods such as fear, doubt, money, pride, and our selves being our savior. He knew we would fail because we are not made to be Holy without Him. Now He commands everyone to repent which means to change our hearts in another direction, from what ever direction that is away from Him, into a new direction, the direction of the King in you is wanting you to go. The direction of receiving all His love of forgiveness for our Sins. We were forgiven by His love given to us on the cross. God has set a day He will judge the world with justice, and He has proof of this to all men by raising Him, our Lord and Savior from the dead. Since He has made all things known to us by the gift of the Holy Spirit that is living in us, we know He gives all men life, and breath and everything else, we know He was never and is never far from us, He is within us! For in Him we live and move and have our being! What a glorious Savior and God we have!!! He is not far from you, open your heart and let Him in!!
