KEEP FURTHER AWAY Wednesday, September 2, 2020

As he approached the cash register to pay for his groceries, the young woman ahead of him said, “Even though you have a mask on, you still need to keep further away.” He backed up. These situations are common these days, but different from the relationship between the Heavenly Father and us. In fact, God inspired James in the New Testament to write, “Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.” Because of the current conditions in our world, it is sadly necessary to keep our distance from others. Thankfully, our loving Savior invites us to “draw near” to Him, not distance ourselves. Surprisingly, even though “He is holy” and none of us on our own deserves to be near Him, He invites us to come to Him. Elsewhere in the Bible, the Lord invites, “Come to Me, […] and I will give you rest.”
