Acts 17: 23
“For while I was passing through and examining the objects of your worship, I also found an altar with this inscription, ‘TO AN UNKNOWN GOD.’ Therefore what you worship in ignorance, this I proclaim to you. NASB
Much like the Athenians there are those that believe in God but think He is too much to be called upon. Not understanding GOD’s nature to us is that He loves for us to call on Him. He wants our total dependence to be on Him. He gave us His Son so we can come back into His Presence. But we have to put Christ and Him crucified as the object of our worship, “no man come to the Father but by the Son.”
Adam and Eve were kicked out the Presence of the LORD because they sinned (missed the mark). They made what the enemy gave them the object of their worship. So in wanting something else to become the object of their worship, GOD gave us a focus point, Jesus Christ. I wear glasses because somewhere along the line my eyes missed the mark, lost a step in focusing. But with glasses I can see clearly. When I take them off the world is distorted and confusing but the instant I put them on all the world’s in-focus to me. Christ Jesus is our glasses and the world is GOD. We might see some of Him; hit and miss, but we really can’t understand Him until we put on Jesus.
