Acts 17:28

Written by Joe Dardano

The famous verse in Acts 17:28 “‘In him we live and move and have our being” is the signature verse that edifies the Biblical phrases about God being the God of the living and not of the dead (Heb. 4: 12-13). Love between people, especially believers in Christ, is a sign that the living God exists, and even more a sign when a brother or sister forgives another, then loves his or her enemy by doing good to those who hate them. This is not easy, but possible with the help of prayer & fasting. The point we want to underline is that throughout the New Testament the phrase “the living God” appears often, as it does in the Old Testament. This pushes us to consider God as more than just showing up at church every Sunday for worship. It should influence us to see God in all our affairs, in the details of every aspect of our lives. Can we see God in our finances? In our relationships with family? In our work environment ? etc… When we meet strangers, do we take those opportunities to see another creation of God?
