From a Distance

Like sand sifting through your fingers, summer is too quickly making its annual migration to the southern hemisphere.  Our planet is streaking through space at 67,000 mph, yet it seems we’re standing still.

Each of us, tortoises and hares alike, wants to make the most of life’s journey.  Some do so in the spotlight while others play valuable roles backstage.  Our Creator plays no favorites.  He loves all of us equally.  

The clearest evidence of that is the cross on which He sacrificed His life to pay sin’s penalty for every person of every station in life.  A no-strings gift that’s ours for the taking.  He’s bigger than the trackless universe, yet intimate enough to know your name.

“God the Father made God the Son, Jesus Christ, who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Christ we might become right with God.”
