Inge: heaven

Tuesday, December 6, 2022
    Feast of Nicholas, Bishop of Myra, c.326
    Acknowledge and take to heart this day that the LORD is God in heaven above and on the earth below. There is no other.
    —Deuteronomy 4:39 (NIV)
    Heaven is not a far-away place to which we hope to go; it is the presence of God in which we ought to live.
    ... William R. Inge (1860-1954), Personal Religion and the Life of Devotion, London: Longmans, Green and Co., 1924, p. 85 (see the book)
    See also Deut. 4:39; Gen. 28:16; Ps. 139:7-10; Isa. 57:15; Jer. 23:23-24; Hos. 6:6; Matt. 28:19-20; Acts 17:24-28
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord God, You are fully present here.
