We are in a world that is consumed with knowing every single detail of an individual's life, as long as we can stalk them from afar. We love Google. We love Facebook, especially if the account is set to "public". We even love blogs about people that may or may not be true. But what about the details of who God is? Where do we find these details? Are we as consumed about who God is as those who previously walked this earth? At the end of Acts 17, Paul the Apostle gives some incredible details about who God is. Take a look:
24 “He is the God who made the world and everything in it. Since he is Lord of heaven and earth, he doesn’t live in man-made temples, 25 and human hands can’t serve his needs—for he has no needs. He himself gives life and breath to everything, and he satisfies every need. 26 From one man he created all the nations throughout the whole earth. He decided beforehand when they should rise and fall, and he determined their boundaries.
27 “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. 28 For in him we live and move and exist.

In this passage of Scripture we read that God is:
Just like you cannot see the entire story of someone's life on Facebook, this small portion of Scripture does not even come close to telling us all there is to know about God. It is a start though. Do you know what else will help you gain more knowledge about who God is? Reading the Bible. The entire Bible. Not in one day, but taking a bit of time each day to tackle a piece of the inspired word of God. What are some of the things that you are learning about God in your reading?
With sincere love for each of you,
