From a Distance

At face value, Bette Midler’s beautiful song “From a Distance” is a song of hope for humanity. The chorus says,

God is watching us. God is watching us.

God is watching us from a distance.

If God is only watching us from a distance, then all the beautiful songs we might sing will be for nothing.

The Bible tells us a very different story. It tells of a God who is very close to every one of us, delighting in those moments in which we acknowledge his presence and open our lives up to his love.

Because he loves us, God came into this world through his Son Jesus Christ, to be one of us, as near to us as he could possibly be.

As beautiful as her song is, Bette Midler was wrong. God isn’t watching you from a distance.

Remember, if you will accept him, he is as close to you as your heart.
