Please Keep to a Safe Distance

People have an appreciation for moral excellence, as long as it is removed a safe distance from them.  The Jews honored the prophets from a distance.  This world honors Christ, from a distance.

Peter wanted to be with Jesus, until he got too close.  Then Peter cried, “Please leave.”

– R.C. Sproul, The Holiness of God, Tyndale House Publishers, Carol Stream, Ill., Copyright 1985, Kindle Edition
