Acts 17:26-27 From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any of us.
What we call infinity in time and space is beyond our comprehension. Time is no more infinite in the dawn of the geologic past or in the millennium of the farthest prophetic future than it is now while you put into it what thoughts and acts you will.
The infinity of space is just as much infinity where you are as it is at any point, countless light-years away. God is infinite: which means, among other things, that God is not more distant than present. You cannot grasp God in your hand, you cannot comprehend God in your thought but you can sample God and know God in Jesus Christ. In that life on earth, God became visible, tangible, and intensely loveable to the open-hearted and obedient.
