Over time, we've tried to use the power of imagination. Like ancient Greeks have deciphered, if there is a god that we don't know about, then his skin must be golden and his reflection must be as bright as the sun, and his name must be Zeus. Also, he would be lonely if he was just by himself so he must have eleven supreme other deities (amongst others) living with him on Mount Olympus, where the immortal gods lived, and they must have different functions because it would be really exhausting for one god to do all the work: Ares (god of war), Aphrodite/Venus (goddess of love), Apollo (god of prophesy, music, and healing), Artemis (virgin goddess of the hunt), Athena (goddess of crafts and domestic arts), Demeter (goddess of agriculture), Dionysus (god of wine), Hephaestus (god of blacksmiths), Hera (goddess of marriage), Hermes (messenger of the gods), Poseidon (god of the sea, earthquakes, and horses), and of course Zeus (the most supreme god).
I've come to the realization that generations will keep seeking His face...
Modern age has emphasized the fact that with new technology and science, there must be a greater ability to know this unknown God. Scientists and philosophers alike have introduced a 'light' within ourselves, knowledge, wisdom, and self-realization as gods in their own right. You can find it within you! But the more people seek, the less satisfied they get. The more people seek a new technological and scientific god, the less they know.
In Acts 17, Paul was walking through the various sheds in the market-place, and he found an inscription that said "To the Unknown God." Immediately, he seized that opportunity to introduce the God that met him on the way to Damascus. The God that sent His son to be crucified for the redemption of the entire world, on a cross that was originally meant for you and me. The God that has ALL power in His hands...non-divisible power (not distributed amongst other gods). The God that has no impossibilities in that when we call upon His Name, He is not too deaf to answer. The God that does not live in man-made temples...
We sometimes search for this God in mere men...in the perfection of a lover or in the trust of a friend. Sometimes we search for Him in the abundance of wealth or in the equivalence of euros, pounds, or dollars. Sometimes we search for Him by having dangerous rushes of adrenaline and getting high on drugs. Yet, all that is left is still a painful dissatisfaction. But just as Paul said in Acts 17:23, I too am saying today, "Therefore I introduce the One whom you worship without knowing." He is the God that you have been seeking and yet He has been there, but you have not understood Him. Today, if you can just look outside your window and see His creations, you will know that man did not mold Him from clay, but He molded the world into what it is today. If you have not done this before and you feel like that person who was worshiping an unknown god, all you need to do is acknowledge the fact that here, on this blog, in this second, you can feel His presence. Don't run away from what you're feeling because what you are feeling is true. There is a God, and He is the Lord Almighty, a Redeemer and Friend.
Today, I ask you to please take one breath from the oxygen He created, and say "Lord, I can feel your presence here, I accept You and want to know You more." And your life will never be the same again. I can stand by that because I've experienced Him.
