Verse 23b, 26a, 27: Therefore, the One whom you worship without knowing, Him I proclaim to you.
And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth,
...so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us;
This entire passage and especially these verses give me a different insight for talking about God with those of other faiths, or those who believe there is a God, but do not believe there is a way to know Him. Many people I talk to believe there is a higher power, but are uncomfortable pursuing the thought further. Paul describes this God to his listeners in Athens, and acknowledges they have the same God. We have learned more about this God through Christ Jesus, and He need no longer be unknown to anyone! If I can digest this, I may be able to share it with someone someday, with God’s help.
Holy Father, I am thankful for your words this morning . They fortify me, and give me knowledge and insight I did not have before. Please give me the opportunity to share this with someone. I am yours. Amen
