“God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us.”Acts 17:27
The Verse in Context
From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us. ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’
To me this truly shows how loving and kind God is in inviting all to seek Him.
For me, I can never forget that before all things, God wants—first and foremost—man to reach out to him. What he wants is me to be thinking less of myself and more of him, because:
We live, move, and have our being through him.
