Nearness to Christ

"Gracious souls are never perfectly at ease unless they are in a state of nearness to Christ, for when they are away from Him, the lose their peace. The nearer to Him, the nearer they are to the perfect calm of heaven; the nearer to Him, the fuller their heart is, not only of peace, but also of life, vigor, and joy, for these all depend on constant communion with Jesus. What the sun is to the day, what the moon is to the night, what the dew is to the flower, such is Jesus Christ to us."
~C. H. Spurgeon
