Paul in Athens

My good friend Bill Wyse occasional contributes a daily thought for his church in Whitley Bay. Here’s a recent piece.

“Paul stood up at the Areopagus and said, “Men of Athens I see that in every way you are very religious—Now what you worship as something unknown, I am going to proclaim to you.” (Acts 17:22-28) 

The Greeks were avid worshippers of non-gods in their gaudy temples. Paul cleverly uses the inscription to tell them about his God and His temple which is a spiritual one, not a man-made one. The Bible talks about living stones, that is temples not made with human hands. 

In this time when we are not meeting together in a physical building, but as living stones (His offspring) we worship a living God whom Paul affirms. “In whom we live and move and have our being.” That is who we are!
