The Gospel, The Good News 7 of 41

The Glory of God (cont)

Every second of my life, from the moment of conception to my last heartbeat, is totally and utterly dependent on God.

Acts 17:28
…for in Him we live and move and have our being….

Paul was preaching and sharing the Gospel in the marketplace in Athens when certain philosophers heard him and brought him to what is known as the Areopagus (which means Mars Hill) for other men of learning to hear what he had to say. (To read the whole sermon and what happened, it can be found in Acts 17 of the Bible, or follow this link and read it … Acts 17  ).
Here in verse 28 Paul says that God brought all people into being and they only exist for His providence. 

Job 12:9-10
Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this, In whose hand is the life of  
        every living thing, and the breath of all mankind?

Colossians 1:16-17
For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether  
        thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. all things were created through Him and for Him. And He is  
        before all things, and in Him all things consist.
