As I was walking along I saw your many altars.
One had this inscription on it—“To an Unknown God.”
You have been worshiping him without knowing who he is,
and now I wish to tell you about him.
Acts 17:23 NLT
I am not a founder of a religion—I am the Redeemer.
On the altar of Calvary, believe Me and know complete salvation.
I am not a teacher of a philosophy—I am the Prince of Peace.
On the altar of reverence, seek Me and know indefinable serenity.
I am not a charlatan—I am the Wonderful Counselor.
On the altar of faith, follow Me and know unflinching assurance.
I am not an abstraction—I am the Almighty.
On the altar of expectation, depend on Me and know graceful strength.
I am not a security blanket—I am the Savior.
On the altar of repentance, receive Me and know unfailing love.
I am not a concept—I am the Creator.
On the altar of humility, recognize Me and know ultimate meaning.
I am not a hallucination—I am your Helper.
On the altar of trust, rely on Me and know unflappable equanimity.
I am not a superstition—I am the Sovereign.
On the altar of wisdom, learn of Me and know infinite worth.
I am not a fabrication—I am your Friend.
On the altar of truth, walk with Me and know heavenly compassion.
I am not a lunatic—I am Lord of all.
On the altar of surrender, give Me your heart and know total freedom.
I am not a creed—I am the Christ.
On the altar of sincerity, obey Me and know perfect reality.
