He Is Not Far

The Lord is not far from the broken and contrite heart. He is our comfort, our help in time of trouble, our arbor of rest. Though we have been unsettled by sin, the Lord grants us forgiveness, peace and rest in Him. Our sins make us want to run from Jesus. That might take us far from Him.  But the only way we can really deal with our sins is to bring ourselves and our sins to Him.         

When we do so, He gladly deals with them. He takes them upon Himself so that the Father is greatly pleased with Jesus and with us. So, do not tarry there with your sins in tow. Having cast them upon Jesus, come to His rest, His peace, His fellowship, His bread, His wine. Herein is fullness of joy.
