Max Lucado wrote a book years ago titled, "When God Came Near". It was a work on the phenomenon of Christ coming here to do what only He could do for a fallen world. Max's writings are easy to grasp for people young, or mature in their faith, and they always make you think because they put a somewhat complex and sort of difficult to grasp scenario, into terms that make sense.
We all experience moments when "God Came Near". Some recognize it instantly for what it is, some feel it, but aren't Scripturally/Spiritually adept enough at the time to fully grasp the significance, others, for all kinds of reasons, shake it off or simply ignore the moment.
Sheila and I just went for a long walk this afternoon and took Halle with us. She opted for a shaded stroller replete with a beverage/snack center of sorts and a great view of the gorgeous day rolling by. We were about a mile into the walk, moving at a brisk pace, when from under the canopy Halle began to sing Christian songs. The first was "Standing On The Promises...." word for word, then went into a musical rendition of The Our Father, followed by "He Is Risen" by Paul Overstreet. She didn't skip a beat, and never looked out from under her canopy, completely lost in her impromptu worship. When God Came Near" indeed, I could feel His Breath.
