What about God? Don’t know? There are probably very few people on earth who has no knowledge of any God, any religion or higher power. Like Charlie, who lived in a small mountain community in the U.S. He was rough around the edges and God was a byword to him like God is to many others. He knew about church, the Bible and religion but not enough to get involved. Yet there was something missing in his life. And he didn’t know what. Still, when he got in trouble or in need, he would talk to the “man upstairs” and ask for help. He would pray to the unknown God. Eventually someone shared the gospel with him, he went to church, repented and later in life became a pastor!
Our loving God sees this and desires us to share our faith with people like Charlie. In the Bible we read how the Apostle Paul dealt with people who worshiped many Gods including an unknown God.
Paul said, “God overlooked people’s ignorance about these things in earlier times, but now he commands everyone everywhere to repent of their sins and turn to him. For he has set a day for judging the world with justice by the man he has appointed, and he proved to everyone who this is by raising him from the dead.” (Acts 17:30-31)
This man is Jesus, and He is coming soon so help them, show them, teach them about our loving Lord Jesus and our Father who art in heaven. It’s urgent. They don’t know.
