Be Near

I started this blog almost 2 years ago with the lyrics of a Shane and Shane song. They are my favorite recording artists to listen to. Recently I was listening to their song "Be Near" and was really convicted. The lyrics say, "be near, oh God, be near, oh God of us, your nearness is to us our good." 

That should be the cry of our heart. We should want God to be near to us. The problem that I see today is that people do not want God to be near because they would have to change the way they live. If we lived our lives as if Jesus was standing right there next to us at all times, I guarantee that we would not do a lot of the things that we do. 

The amazing thing is that if you are a believer, God in the person of the Holy Spirit is right there inside of you and transforming you every moment of your life. God is near! I challenge you today to make every decision as if Jesus was standing next to you and see how different you would live! 

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31
