World Mandate - The Journey of the Church 
Part 9 (Acts 17:27-31)


27 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

without guilt (1st Adam) vs. guilty one (2nd Adam) 

28 ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’

the relevancy of poetry

29 “Therefore since we are God’s offspring, we should not think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone—an image made by human design and skill. 

relevant need vs. irrelevant help

30 In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent. 

justice (God provides it) vs. mercy (man expects it)

31 For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to everyone by raising him from the dead.”

salvation = the Justice of God + the Justifier of God
