Ruth 3:1-4:22; Isaiah 43:1-44:5; 2 Corinthians 3:1-4:6

Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell
with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall
be with them, and be their God. Revelation 21:3

The Most High God is far above all, unequaled, and supreme.
Separate from His creation, He is the possessor of heaven and
earth, the Sovereign of the ages. Yet He delights to draw near to
us. God the Son descended from heaven, humbling Himself in
His incarnation, taking a servant’s place. He was willing to die
for our sins so all who believe on Him will eternally live with
God. Our future is to have the Most High God forever near to us.
Praise His name. —George Ferrier

God is both further from us, and nearer to us,
than any other being. —C. S. Lewis
