Nearness to God

Charles Haddon Spurgeon, the Prince of PreachersOur nearness to God is peculiarly evinced at the mercy-seat. The very term we use for prayer is, “Let us draw nigh unto God.” But, brethren, we never get to God in prayer unless it is through pleading the precious blood. We see our nearness to God in the act of praise. Oftentimes in praising him, we have taken the wings of seraphs, and passed up into the glory and magnified the Lord, but it has always been through him who by his precious blood makes our praises acceptable to the Most High.
