God is portrayed most times as distant because many religions keep him up in the heavens all-powerfully looking down on us.  Christianity pulls the God of the universe into our souls to have an intimate, personal relationship with Him.  He is all powerful and all knowing, but He is also Daddy and Friend of Sinners.  The work and person of Jesus God took Father God of heaven, Lord of Heaven’s Armies and made Him personal God and invested Holy Spirit God into our souls for our personal and kingdom development.  What more amazing story and truth is there?  None.  Absolutely none.
