What does it mean for Jesus to be close to us?
Even though our sin has put distance between us and God, God sent his Son Jesus to became one of us, and live with us!
He was close to the sick and sad, to heal them. He was close to the wise and foolish, to teach them. He was close to the young and old, to offer them life forever with him.
And eventually, Jesus died for us, to bring us close to God again.
We can’t see Jesus now, but he’s not far away. Be encouraged by Jesus’ promise that he is with his people always, to the very end of the age.
