God With Us
by Peter Mill

God With UsHello.

Recently I heard a Bishop make a confession on national radio! His ‘crime’? He was guilty of double-zooming. If you, like me, have never heard of that term before, it is the act of joining two online video meetings at the same time.

Dr David Walker, Bishop of Manchester, went on to tell the Radio 4 audience why he decided to kick the habit. He said it was just not possible to be fully present with two groups of people in two meetings at once, so it was disrespectful to everyone.

It is humbling to admit that, as mere mortals, we are unable to be all-seeing, all-knowing and omnipresent. Those qualities are reserved for the divine. Imagine, if you can, a God who is not only able to be fully present with every single person on the planet; he is also willing. In fact, it is his heart’s desire.

That’s a mind-blowing concept, isn’t it? Yet for Christians, that’s the reality of Jesus who was also called Immanuel, which simply means God with us.

Jesus is never too busy to be fully present with you. Why not spend some time with him?

All the very best,
Peter Mill
