I wonder, if Jesus were present in our time, what he might write on the sidewalks and walls. We know that he shouted along the Sea of Galilee, "Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are you who hunger now, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh" (Luke 6:20-21). Jesus came offering the propaganda of hope. To people longing for purpose and wholeness he declared, "You are the salt of the earth! You are the light of the world!" (Matthew 5:13-14).
So Paul took his stand in the open space at the Areopagus and laid it out for them: "I'm here to introduce you to this God.... He doesn't play hide-and-seek with us. He's not remote; he's near. We live and move in him, can't get away from him!" ~Acts 17
