Morning Spiritual Recipe: OmenukoJesus in “Living the Word”
Wednesday 17th May, 2023
Acts 17:15, 22B18:1
Theme: The “Unknown god” and the Known “Triune God”!
The incident of the first reading between Paul and the Athenians leaves us with the proper understanding that our souls recognise before them, a greater being. As philosophical and tacitly polytheistic as they are, they inadvertently expressed their submission and paid obeisance to one supreme being they referred to as “to the unknown god.” Jesus, however, in the Gospel, continues to open up the mystery of the Trinity by speaking of the “three persons” in one God and their “unity and bond.” As the passage of his earthly life draws even more and more closer, Jesus speaks clearer and more often about his relationship with the Father and the Holy Spirit, as well as about the coming of the Holy Spirit. He makes clearer what some Athenians refused to understand from Paul and ascribed to as “the unknown god.” Today we have Christians who only “enjoy” and “shield” under the title than they know and understand as well as live out the Christian fulness.
Child of God, as much as we claim to be Christians, we must ensure, every day of our lives, that we have no “unknown gods” in our lives.
Good morning, and enjoy your day!
