24) God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
25) Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;Acts 17:24-25 (KJV)
Not in Temples Made with Hands
In this episode of The Greater Heritage podcast we study reasons why Christians enjoy God’s presence and feel at peace when surrounded by his creation.
Paul’s sermon in Athens on Mars Hill teaches us why God’s presence in creation brings peace to the Christian.
First, God is uncontainable – he is everywhere. God cannot be confined to a specific place, nor do we have to go to certain locations to be with him.
God is always with us and that’s comforting.“The next time you spend time with God in nature, bask in the glory of his love for you.”Second, even in a world tinged and scarred with sin, God is still Lord of heaven and earth.
He still protects, upholds and cares for us by giving us a home and all things in a universe intelligently designed by him.
Moreover and thirdly, God is Lord of heaven and earth and gives everyone life and breath. Human life is a precious gift from God.
Lastly, God does not need our worship. Instead, he wants us to give him our adoration out of our love for him and he wants to love us in return.
The next time you spend time with God in nature, bask in the glory of his love for you.
