Devoted to Jesus - Our One True God
For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD, whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. Acts 17:23
While passing through Athens on a missionary journey, Paul encountered stoic philosophers who claimed that Paul was a preacher of foreign gods! Yet in reality, it was those men who were the worshipers of foreign gods and idols. Paul made it clear to them that they were devoted to an unknown god, not the one true God.
Jesus was sent to dwell among His people through a physical birth. He was born through an obedient and extraordinary young woman named Mary. He would grow up to be the Savior of the world, fully man and fully God with no sin in Him. He healed the sick, cast out demons and performed astounding miracles. He was in the beginning, creator of all things and was obedient to the Father through His death, burial and resurrection.
Paul challenged all men to become devoted to Jesus and through his writings in God's Holy Word, he continues to encourage those of us today to become deeply devoted and committed to Jesus, our One True God.
