Acts 17:16-31

The Areopagus was an aristocratic council of ancient Athens. You could compare it to the United States Supreme Court today.

The philosophers took Paul to the meeting. The council questioned. Paul stood up. He chose his words very carefully. Paul tells them he will now enlighten them.

The city of Athens was full of idols. There were statues erected throughout the streets and neighborhoods. Like most religious people, there was lots of talking and listening, but not much action.

Worship is active. It is both an inner and outer experience. Our worship is a thirsting and hungering for God above everything else. All of life is worship.

What does active worship look like?

We fix our hearts on Christ.

We renew our minds through God’s Word.

We devote our lives to Holiness transformation.

It’s time for active worship. Let’s magnify the glory and grace of God.
