“From a Distance?”
Psalm 139: 1-2: “O Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You understand my thought from afar.” Several years ago someone made a lot of money singing “God is watching us from a distance”, but I don’t know if they made God very happy. It’s just not true! God is personally interested in and involved with each one of us; He’s not some celestial stalker “somewhere out there.” No, the nearness of God is our good (Psalm 73: 28). That’s what the Incarnation, which we celebrate next week, is all about – the Word in our midst.
