Idolatry in Athens

1 Thessalonians 3:1–2 Therefore, when we could no longer endure it, we thought it good to be left in Athens alone, and sent Timothy, our brother and minister of God, and our fellow laborer in the gospel of Christ, to establish you and encourage you concerning your faith,

Paul needed Timothy, but the church needed him more. Paul left in Athens? Background on Athens, full of idolatry. In fact, there were more idols than citizens. Paul comes to the idol labeled the unknown god, just so they didnt miss one. He then uses that thought and attributes God to it and preaches before the people! I remember the days when God was unknown to me. Great news, He desires to be known! He revealed Himself to me. All my idols, fell and lessened to me that day. Where was your Athens experience? The moment you discovered God? The inscription then read, to the known God! I lost my life that day and the life I now live is His!
