Whilst the Apostle Paul waited for Silas and Timothy to join him from Berea, he looked around Athens. He noticed God-fearing people (17), people who wanted to engage with what he had to say (18-21). He saw how religious they were, and how they worshipped (22-23). But he was distressed because the people of Athens seemed to want to embrace God, but still hold on to their old traditions & superstitions “just in case”. He wanted to help the people of Athens to see past their distractions so that they could clearly see the fullness of the glory of God, and so respond fully to Him in every part of their lives.
