“The nearer you go to God, the nearer God will come to you.” (James 4:8)
The basic strategy – not only to be “near” Him, but to be “nearer.” He is always close to us. We are His children, but even children can go far away from their Father. How often not because we want to, but because we forget about Him in daily life. So many things to do. Before going to sleep something reminds us: I haven’t prayed today. Too tired today. Tomorrow I will spend more time with Him. And “tomorrow” is always tomorrow. The only chance we have is today.
“The nearer you go to God”. How much nearer? In what way? Needs my answer. This is between me and Him: “You go – He will come to you”.
“… whoever receives me, receives not me but the One who sent me” (Mk 9:37).
