THOUGHTS FOR LIFE February 15
“Man was designed for the presence of God,
not for His absence.
In Christ God cancelled every definition of distance. Is 40:4,5.”
– Francois du Toit
Yes, through the revelation of the mystery of Christ in us, God cancelled every definition of distance. Whether it is spiritual distance, social distance or physical distance, they have been abolished by the presence, the nearness and the oneness of God in us, with us and around us.
In terms of spiritual distance, we all who were once alienated in our mind He has now reconciled to Himself (our highest self). (Col 1:21)
In terms of social distance, every mountain has been made low and every valley has been exalted so that every one, from the least to the greatest (in the eyes of society), has been placed on equal footing and standing since we all share the same origin and identity. (Is 40:4-5)
In terms of physical distance, humankind are all around us – spiritual beings on a human journey – a testimony of God in us, with us and around us, so we are always accompanied by Love wherever we are. “In Him we live and move and have our being.” (Acts 17:28)
