Let's continue what we began this morning and open your Bible to the seventeenth chapter of Acts. I know it's a little unusual for me to begin a sermon on a Sunday morning and wrap it up on a Sunday night, but it is unusual because this is the Sunday that I am introducing to you the series on the attributes of God. I tried to establish this morning how important it is to know our God.
You remember, don't you, the prayer of our Lord in John 17 where He prays to the Father, "And this is eternal life that they may know You, the only true God and the Lord Jesus Christ whom You have sent." The prayer of our Lord is that we would have a true knowledge of God. And you remember that the Lord spoke through the prophet Jeremiah in chapter 9 and verses 23 and 24 and said, "If you're going to boast, don't boast about your wisdom. If you're going to boast, don't boast about your might. If you're going to boast, don't boast about your riches. If you want to boast, boast that you know Me." And then God goes on to say, "It is in that that I delight."
