A Reminder of the Scarlet Thread

"This is what God the Lord says-
he who created the heavens and stretched them out,
who spread out the earth and all that comes out of it,
who gives breath to its people,
and life to those who walk on it;
"I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness;
I will take hold of your hand.
I will keep you and make you to be a covenant for the people
and a light for the Gentiles,
to open eyes that are blind,
the free captives from prison
and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.
"I am the Lord; that is my name!
I will not give me glory to another
or my praise to idols." Isaiah 42:5-8

"The God who made the whole earth and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives all men life and breath and everything else. From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. For in him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.'

Therefore since we are God's offspring, we should not think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone- and image made by man's design or skill. In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent. For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to all men by raising him from the dead." Acts 17:24-31
