The Lord is Near

‘Rejoice in the Lord always, I will say it again, Rejoice. Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.’ ‘ Philippians 4:4-5

Twice we are asked to rejoice. So it must be important. Then we are asked to be gentle. Many people are hurting at the present, We need to be kind and gentle with them. And then we are told’ the Lord is near.’ We don’t need to despair because the Lord is near.
