A WORD FROM THE APOSTLE PAUL FOR TODAY


By Paul the Apostle

Recorded by Dr. Luke 

A.D. 62

ATHENS, GREECE  -- God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands.

Nor is He worshped with men's hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things. And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their habitation 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 of us;

For in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said,
For we are also His offspring.

Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man's devising. Truly, there times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men to repent.because He had appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom 
He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead."

As one of Paul's traveling companions, Luke notes at the end of the passage in Acts 17:24-18, "But when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked, while others said, 'We will hear you again on this matter.' But some men joined Paul and believed.
