Gray: the nearness and remoteness of God

Friday, April 3, 2020
    [Jesus:] “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’”
    —Matthew 25:40 (NIV)
    The nearness of God may inspire awareness of his activity, mystery and order in the most ordinary and “non-sacred” places. Therefore, Christians working in any kind of college must pray for and cultivate delicate sensitivity to God’s unexpected disclosures in the ordinary and even in the profane areas of life. The temptation of those who exalt the unrestricted activity of God in any and all places is that they may become overly diffuse in their outlook, seeing him where he does not deign to disclose himself or scorning the customary or conventional places of public worship. These, strangely enough, are the places where the very distance of God leads us. [Continued tomorrow]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, make me know the touch of Your Spirit when I am involved with the world’s affairs.
