Tomb of the Unknowns
by Pam Ford Davis  
5/26/2011 / Devotionals


Soldiers around the world unite to honor the memory of those killed in battle. It is more than duty; it is a desire to make an effort to keep alive their name and cause. It is especially painful to survivors when remains are unidentifiable and there is no closure. This led to resting places in numerous nations for those listed as unknown soldiers. The United States remembers their unknown fallen at the "Tomb of the Unknowns" at Arlington National Cemetery.

Apostle Paul walked the streets of Athens and felt sadness as he observed the worship of idols. It compelled him to share his knowledge of Jesus and the resurrection in synagogues and the market place. The crowds thought the message was strange but they enjoyed discussions about new ideas. (Acts 17: 15-21) Paul seized the moment as an opportunity for evangelism.

"And Paul stood in the midst of the Areopagus and said, 'Men of Athens, I observe that you are very religious in all respects. For while I was passing through and examining the objects of your worship, I also found an altar with this inscription, 'TO AN UNKNOWN GOD.' What therefore you worship in ignorance, this I proclaim to you. (Acts 17:22-23 NAS)." He introduced them to the Creator, the giver of life, calling people to repentance.

God does not record a list of unknowns. "O LORD, Thou has searched me and known me (Psalm 139:1 NAS)." He knows all about us; He knows me. "Thou does scrutinize my path and my lying down, and art intimately acquainted with all my ways (Psalm 139:3 NAS)." There is great comfort in the realization that none is unknown by the One who formed them. Nations may not be able to identify a soldier; God calls them all by name.
