‘Responding to the true God’ (Acts 17:22-31)

There’s no doubt that the Scriptures are full of challenges to the reader. This is especially true in the account of Paul’s message to the people of Athens recorded for us in Acts 17:16-34. While the Athenians had many gods that they wished to acknowledge, their altar to the ‘Unknown God’ gave the Apostle Paul a great opportunity to address their ignorance and tell them of the God to whom all must respond with repentance and faith, as Ryan Smith explains as he opens up the text.



• Some truths require a response!
Acts 17:30-31

1) God is going to judge the world (v.31)

2) The resurrection of Jesus assures this (v.31)

3) The required response is repentance (v.30)
