STAND UP TO WRONG
16 While Paul was waiting for them in Athens, he was greatly distressed to see that the city was full of idols.”
As Paul was waiting for Silas and Timothy in Athens, which was a great city of very intelligent people. Yet they always were trying to find something new that they could look up to or say was worthy of worship. The city was full of all types of idols and gods. They were intellectually smart people and knew of the ONE true God, but still wanted to have a physical god to see and worship.
How many gods do we put in our life today? Money, Jobs, Homes, Women, Society and it’s compromising things that are not biblically acceptable. Paul stood up and told these men of their wrong way of thinking, their fault in putting things on display in their city and homes that were NOT godly. ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and let Him be your strength to stand up against anything that is counter to Jesus and His love.
