and under the statue it was inscribed “to the unknown god”
this Scripture has always stuck out in my mind. i get it. i understand the thought process – the worshippers? they wanted to make sure they had their bases covered. they would sacrifice and worship every god they knew…and they even prayed to the unknown one – you know just in case the other 1,2, or 10 they were sacrificing to didn’t work out.
it’s heartbreaking. gut wrenching even. but how broken am i truly over this? it’s not like it’s something that solely occurred in Biblical times. all i have to do is walk out my front door. i have neighbors who are worshiping an unknown god. they might not have a statue made with an inscription (although that is indeed a reality as well) but they are trying to “cover their bases” with a god that is unknown.
have i told them? have i introduced them to the One True God whose mission is to be glorified – to be known intimately by everyone He created? I know Him. I serve a God whom I know. Whom knows me and loves me.
there are indeed so many introductions to be made.
