A Lesson in Acts

The Acts of the Apostles, Chapter 17
Who made the world and all things?
24: God that made the world and all things therein,
How could that be? 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;
Are we not all of the same race?
26: And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
To what purpose?
27: That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him,

How difficult is it to find God?
though he be not far from every one of us:

28: For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
In what way should we regard God?
29: Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.
What now does God require of us?
30: And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
Why should we repent?
31: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness
How shall we be judged?
by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

That man is Jesus, the Christ. What will you do with Christ?
This you must do:

Acts:16:31: And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

Rom:10:9: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

May the blessings of His love and the gift of his salvation be yours today.
