His purpose was for the nations to seek after God and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him—though he is not far from any one of us. For in him we live and move and exist.
Insight- Paul is addressing some very religious men and women in Athens, they had idols and shrines for every imaginable god or deity, even one to an ‘unknown god’. Paul, used their passion and zeal for enlightenment and introduced them to Christ! What a great reminder for how we can engage our culture with the good news, God is not far from anyone.
Prayer- Jesus, please help me to look for those who are seeking truth and purpose in life, even though they may be looking in the wrong places. Your purpose is that all people would find and feel their way back home to you! Use me Holy Spirit to introduce these seekers to Jesus. I love you , Amen.
