so that they would seek God, if they might grope for him and really find him, although, in fact, he is not far off from each one of usActs 17:27
One reason I quit my original church was the thought of mediation. I’ve told you here before that at age 12 I began my reading and study of the Bible. A part of this was due to having to have an official of the church come to God for me. A proxy is needed? I thought not and the Bible proved me correct.
God is so close that you may be able to touch Him, figuratively speaking. He awaits your coming to Him as this is your duty, not His. He feels joy and welcome to one especially if one is not a follower of His word yet looks for and finds Him. The Prodigal Son is about this very search. (Luke 15:11-32)
Take a few moments and read this parable. Think on it as if your life depended on it. It will tell you of God’s love even for those who have done a lot of wrong in their life. I am an example of this. This parable turned me back from ventures into oblivion and made me a child again. A child of God.
