Evangelism in a Post Modern Culture: Focus on Who God Is

"The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands; nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things; and He made from one man every  nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, that they would seek God if perhaps they might grope for Him and fine Him, though He is not far from each one of us, for in Him we live and move and exist" (Acts 17:24-28).

Paul focuses on who God is as soon as He starts preaching to the peole in Athens.  In this passage we see that God is:
  • The Creator of the universe (v. 24).
    Sharon Beougher
  • The Sustainer of all life (v. 25).
  • The Sovereign Lord of all the nations (v. 26).
  • The Self-revealing God (v. 27-28).
Sometimes I get so busy in life that I forget to stop and just meditate on how GREAT God truly is!  He absolutely is the Creator, Sustainer, Sovereign Lord, and Self-revealing God in my life and in the world.  Nothing is imposible with God.  He can do ALL things.  He has even determined the exact location of where I live.  God is awesome and magnificent, but He is also a very personal God who cares about you and me.  And He cares about those around us.  We must not forget how powerful He is and be obedient to the Great Commission to "Go and tell!"
