For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: TO AN UNKNOWN GOD. So you are ignorant of the very thing you worship-and this is what I am going to proclaim to you. – Acts 17:23 (NIV)
Paul found in an obscure altar the passageway into the Athenians heart. We are all worshipping beings, whether we know it or not – it’s just that our worship can become misguided. We have built altars to money, career, or relationships, but these attempts should be a wake up call that we are looking for something. We were created to know the true God and He is jealous to bring our wayward worship back to its rightful place – in Jesus Christ.
