“An Unknown God”
As believers, it might be difficult to think that not everyone knows of God. Evidence of Him is everywhere.
However, some haven’t heard Him, some have rejected HIim.
Please read the following verses.
22 Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus and said: “Men of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious.
23 For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: TO AN UNKNOWN GOD. Now what you worship as something unknown I am going to proclaim to you.
24 “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands.
25 And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives all men life and breath and everything else.
26 From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live.
27 God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us.
28 ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’
29 “Therefore since we are God’s offspring, we should not think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone — an image made by man’s design and skill.
30 In the past, God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent.
31 For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to all men by raising Him from the dead.”
32 When they heard about the resurrection of the dead, some of them sneered, but others said, “We want to hear from you again on this subject.”
33 At that, Paul left the Council.
34 A few men became followers of Paul and believed. Among them was Dionysius, a member of the Areopagus, also a woman named Damaris, and a number of others.
As always, there is a mixed reaction when people hear about the Lord God. A few of them believed, the majority did not. And this is par for the course. The Lord God settles for the remnant.
Are we part of God’s remnant.
I know this doesn’t sound very flattering, but the remnant is what we want to be a part of. In your Bible studies, you will find the remnant is the place to be.
Have a blessed day friend, Amen
