Message for the day

I make it a point to spend at least 45 minutes each morning to pray and read the bible. Everyday I learn more and more about the love Our Father has for us. I found todays message to be very profound and I wanted to share it with all who follow my blog.

From the Book of Acts 17:24 - 31
"The God who made the world and everything in it is Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands.
And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives all men life and breath and everything else. From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. For in him we live and move and have our being.' As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.'
"Therefore since we are God's offspring, we should not think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone - an image made by man's design and skill. In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent.
For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to all men by raising him from the dead."

Hi Terri!

Acts is one of my FAVORITE New Testament books, and the passage you quote is my favorite in Acts!

Here's another favorite of mine:
"Trust in the LORD forever, because in Yah, the LORD, is an everlasting rock!"
Isaiah 26:4

We've put your blog on our favorites list.

God Bless!
