Paul stood up in the middle of the council on Mars Hill and said, “People of Athens, I see that you are very religious in every way. As I was walking through town and carefully observing your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: ‘To an unknown God.’ What you worship as unknown, I now proclaim to you. God, who made the world and everything in it, is Lord of heaven and earth. He doesn’t live in temples made with human hands. Nor is God served by human hands, as though he needed something, since he is the one who gives life, breath, and everything else. From one person God created every human nation to live on the whole earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their lands. God made the nations so they would seek him, perhaps even reach out to him and find him. In fact, God isn’t far away from any of us. In God we live, move, and exist. As some of your own poets said, ‘We are his offspring.’ Acts 17:22-28
We divert from our sermon series this week in order to recap all we've learned in VBS. We will join together on Sunday morning in high energy praise as the children lead us in worship. Be prepared to experience God from the point of view of a child. I am pretty sure you won't be disappointed. You might just find God in new ways as we dance, sing, pray, and experience the love of God in scripture.
Our main scripture verse for the week was, "In God we live, move, and exist." Pretty short and sweet, as well as easy to memorize. The larger context of the verse is above.
The verbs in this short memory verse, "live, move, and exist", are anything but passive. They point us towards the activity of God in our world. They point us towards our own active involvement with God and our world.
Join us Sunday morning as we explore "God's Love in Action".
