“He Is Near”
Help us to live, O Lord, in light of the fact that you are near to us—in fact, that you are present with us—all the time.
Help us to live, O Lord, in light of the fact that you are near to us—in fact, that you are right on the verge of coming back—at any time.
“From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near. So also, when you see all these things, you know that he is near, at the very gates. Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.” (Matthew 24:32-35)
