Nothing popped into my head this morning when I saw the word. Unknown conjures up (without looking at a dictionary):
- without identity
It was brought to my attention this week of a 23 yr old person who has no idea of who God is. God is unknown to this person. Isn’t that sad?
To an unknown god
For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: to an unknown god. So you are ignorant of the very thing you worship–and this is what I am going to proclaim to you. Acts 17.23
Our friend Paul said this in Athens Greece. Those dear people had idols to every god under the sun and, then, just in case they built one to an unknown god.
Aren’t we blessed?
Our God is KNOWN and can be personally KNOWN by each of us. It’s called relationship and that is what we have with our known God after we place our trust in His one and only beloved Son, Jesus Christ.
Known or unknown?
The choice is ours.
