Near

Re: Verse reading – Ephesians 2:11-22 (day three)
“You are no longer foreigners and strangers.”  The reality of God’s nearness keeps repeating throughout scripture: “God with us;” “Here are my mother and my brothers;” “The word is near you.”  This nearness involves God’s drawing near us as well as God’s drawing us near one another.  When God said “It is not good for the man to be alone,” he spoke the truth about a particular instance, and the truth about the entire human race at all times.  It seems as if fellowship with others is but one of many good ideas about Christianity, but it is only in the community of God’s people—when you draw near to others—that you will draw nearest to God.
