A Voice from the Past - Charles Hodge

He is not to us a God far off, with whom we have no immediate concern; but a God who is not far from any of us, in whom we live, move, and have our being, who numbers the hairs of our head, and without whose notice a sparrow does not fall to the ground.

Charles Hodge, 1797-1878, Systematic Theology, Vol 1, Chapter III, 2, A (Eerdmans Printing Company, 1982, pp. 35,36)

Why is the nearness of God important? How should we live in light of it?
