Who is God?

Acts 17: 23-28

 

23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you 24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; 25 Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

I have noticed that many adopted children have a deep-rooted desire to find their biological parents.  Some of these adopted kids go to great lengths to find their parents.  Without being too analytical, we can deduce that something psychological or physiological drives them to this search.  The connection with the creation of their lives is completing for them. 

The same is true of every person born.  There is a spiritual search.  A search for God.  A search for finding the Creator and connecting to Him.  There are many that still grope in the dark for God.  Paul encountered the seekers at Athens.  He told them plainly that God was not far from them.  He explained that their living was due to His involvement.  As believers, we know the truth about God.  We know that He so loved us that He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus, to die for us. 

Take comfort in knowing God.  Be thankful that you know who He is.  Take time today to connect to Him.  Call on Him and enjoy His fellowship.  If you have lost contact, renew your fellowship.  If you have never connected to Him today is the end of your search.  Jesus Christ is God.  He died on a cross for you and me.  Trust Him today and find complete life.  Find the life of forgiveness and fellowship.

 Bless the Lord, oh my soul!!!
