Upwords; Max Lucado –God Is Always Near

GOD IS ALWAYS NEAR – August 24, 2021

What a world Jesus left. The God of the universe was born into the poverty of a peasant girl and spent his first night in the feed trough of a cow. John 1:14 says,”The Word became flesh and lived among us.” The God of the universe left the glory of heaven and moved into the neighborhood. Our neighborhood! Who could have imagined he would do such a thing?

When God came to earth, he ensured our salvation, he ensured grace, he ensured hope, and he ensured something else—that we would never be lonely again. Perhaps you feel lonely today. Perhaps you’ve felt lonely for weeks or even months. We cannot avoid loneliness. It is common to every human experience. But in Christ, God is always near. God loves to be with the ones he loves.
