Even though we do not fully grasp how bad that news about us is, God does. He knows it, He knows how bad it is, and He is doing something about it.
God has ALWAYS been doing something about our sinfulness.
Acts 17:26-27 says,
"And He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel their way toward Him and find Him. Yet He is actually not far from each one of us..."
He puts His people exactly where He did, when He did THAT they would come to know Him.
All the while as we are deaf and blind, He is there.
While we're running after SOMETHING, ANYTHING....He is there, THE ONE who will and can and desires to satisfy us with Himself.
Yesterday's news should show you this: You NEED God.
Today's hope should assure you of this: He is not far from you.
The bad news is bad. But then, the good news, is REALLY, REALLY good. Keep reading in Acts 17 if you want to see just how good it is.
