All things created by God are attracted to each other by a force. This force is called “gravity.”New-ton, one of the greatest scientists, discovered the “law of gravitation”; according to the law of gravitation, the force of gravity between two objects is directly proportional to the product of Their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.
As the distance between two objects decreases, the force of attraction between them increases. Likewise, as the distance between God and us decreases, we will experience more spiritual power of the Holy Spirit working in us.
The gravitational force between two objects becomes stronger as they are brought closer together, and it becomes weaker as they get farther apart. It is the same in the spiritual world. According to the law of gravitation, people are to be attracted to the one whom they are closer to-to God if they are closer to God and Satan if they are closer to Satan. Satan tries to lead us to hell by drawing us to himself, but God wants to lead us, His children, to the eternal kingdom of heaven. That is why God cannot let us remain far away from Him. So, the Bible teaches us to draw near to God.
Ps 73:28 But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign LORD my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds.
Ps 73:27 Those who are far from you will perish; you destroy all who are unfaithful to you.
The Bible says that those who are close to God will be blessed, but that those who are far from God will be perish. We must draw near to God. Drawing near to God means communicating with God and being attracted to the invisible strong power of the Holy Spirit.
God wants to be with us always, to the very end of the age. We, too, should draw near to God.In order to be close to God, we need to keep God’s word close to us. By studying God’s word every day, we should try to find out what God’s will is and which way we have to go. God has taught us how to draw closet to Him.
Jn 6:53-57 Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man anddrink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood as eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him. Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me.”
If God remains in us and we remain in Him, the distance between God and us becomes zero, so we can maximize our spiritual strength. Being closest to God is the way to reach the hightest point of spiritual gravity. Let us find out what covenant God has chosen to reveal this principle.
Mt 26:17-19, 26-28 On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?” He replied, “Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The teacher says: My appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.’ “So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover….. While were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.” Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them. Saying, “Drink from it, all of you, This is my blood if the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.”
The Passover contains this promise: By inheriting the flesh and blood of God, we remain in God, and God in us. So, the Passover is the truth that brings us closest to God. God is closest to us through the Passover of the new covenant and walks with us through it, and saves those who follow Him wherever he leads them.
