God is always close to us, He has always been with us. He gives us the SPIRIT that keeps us alive. God is SPIRIT and even though God is almighty and He is with us He does not intrude on us and He does not force us.
Jesus is knocking at the door of every heart, wanting to come in, to be WITH us, to be IN US. If we open that door and invite Him in He will come in and be with us. He will make His SPIRIT to dwell with us but if we reject Him, if we kick Him out then He will go. If we open the door to the devil then Jesus leaves. If we listen to the devil and ignore Jesus then Jesus will go quiet on us, He will not force us, He will not scream at us. If we reject Him there will come a day when He will also reject us because Jesus is always near to us, He is WITH US to help us, to guide us, to protect us but those who reject Him now will be away from Him for eternity. The moment that God takes away the SPIRIT OF LIFE that is in us then this body perishes and then we stand before Jesus and if we rejected Him all our life then He will also reject us, He will send us away. He will say to many in that day that they die:”Go away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness,” because they would not LISTEN to Him, they would not invite Him in. They disregarded Him and they listened to the devil, they went after their own lusts, they did what they wanted to do, they were not interested in their Maker.
God is always close to us. Jesus is always knocking at the door of our heart, wanting to come in, to be with us, to help us, guide us to coach us, to give us eternal life but if we don't want Him He will leave us.
God is close to you and me. Are we close to Him? Jesus wants to be close with us, are you close with Jesus?
May Jesus bless you.
