Sometimes when I’m reading the Bible, I come across something that is so simply profound that I don’t need to share many thoughts. I just need to share it. Tonight is one of those nights. Paul knew the truth, and he shared it everywhere he went.
“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. 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. 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.
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. “For in Him we live and move and have our being.” . . .
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.
In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now He commands all people everywhere to repent. 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.
When they heard about the resurrection of the dead, some of them sneered, but others said, “We want to hear you again on this subject.”
At that, Paul left the Council. A few men became followers and believed. . .”
When confronted with the truth, there were three responses–some sneered, some wanted more information and some followed and believed.
How have you responded when confronted with the truth?
Follow and Believe.
