What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
“You must not learn the way of the nations,
and you must not be dismayed by the signs of the heavens,
for the nations are dismayed by them.
for it is a tree cut down from the forest,
the work of the hands of a craftsman with the tool.
they strengthen it with nails and hammers,
so that it does not stagger.
5 They are like scarecrowsa in a cucumber field,
they cannot speak.
Indeed, they must be carried,
for they cannot march.
You must not be afraid of them,
for they cannot do evil;
furthermore, to do good is not in them.”
you are great and your name is great in might.
For you it is fitting.
For among all the wise men of the nations,
and in all their kingdoms,b
there is none like you.
8 ⌊At the same time⌋c they are stupid and foolish,
in the instruction of idols, it is wood.
and gold from Uphaz,
the work of the craftsman and the hands of the goldsmith.
Blue and purple are their clothing,
all of them are the work of skillful people.
he is the living God,
and ⌊an everlasting king⌋.d
Because of his wrath the earth quakes,
and the nations cannot endure his anger.
11 “⌊Thus⌋e you shall say to them,
‘Gods who did not make the heavens and the earth
will perish from the earth and from under these heavens.
who created the world by his wisdom,
and by his understanding he stretched out heaven.
13 ⌊When he utters his voice⌋f there is a noise of water in the heavens,
and he causes the mist to rise from the endsg of the earth.
He makes lightning for the rain,
and he causes the wind to go out from his storehouses.
every goldsmith is ashamed by his divine image,
for his cast image is an illusion,
and there is no breath in them.
at the time of their punishment, they will perish.
for he is the creator of everything,
and Israel is the tribe of his inheritance,
Yahweh of hosts is his name.
