Weekly Devotional for 11/28/2021

“Now all the Athenians and the foreigners who lived there would spend their time in nothing except telling or hearing something new” Acts 17:21. 

Thanksgiving’s over; the tree goes up today! As a culture, we’re always looking for the next best thing.  TV shows, clothing, cars—we’re obsessed with “something new.”  When bell-bottoms, mullets, or vinyl records come back, we say they are retro.  Something old is new once again.  Perhaps that could happen with values?  With church attendance as the pandemic wanes?  With the gospel?  Paul entered a city in which the philosophers of his day were so desperate for the next best thing that they were very receptive to what he had to say about “Jesus and the resurrection” and how God “has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man ….”  This was a new idea in the 1st century, but in the midst of many watered-down, feel-good sermons in the church and on social media the gospel preached today would be considered retro.  It begins, not with Santa nor stockings hung with care, but “good news of great joy” that a “Savior” was “born” who is “Christ the Lord.”  

Will you find in the old, old story something new? --
