27 Mar Who Disputes God? (Is 50:9) by Kevin McNicholas
Welcome God now with this LIFE Group Devotion (FB), provided by LIFE Runners (FB). Leaders. Guest Authors.
“Behold, the Lord God helps Me; Who is he who condemns Me? Behold, they will all wear out like a garment; The moth will eat them.” ~ Is 50:9 (full readings)
Kevin’s Reflections: We live in a world that has allowed subjective opinion to pose as objective truth. The Christian principles, rooted in Moral Law, that America was founded on (Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness) have become blurred into often misguided subjectivity that declares that each person’s own way can be “right.” So many sets of problematic moral circumstances that have become law (legal abortion, embryonic stem cell research, the HHS mandate, the Redefinition of Marriage Act) are in direct opposition to God’s Law, the Law that we are called to follow as Christians. Isaiah asked, “who disputes my right” which is a clear statement for all of us today. Who disputes God? He is our help, and no one, regardless of opinion or viewpoint, can overrule God Himself!

Faith Challenge: Work to demonstrate God’s love for someone you may find it especially difficult to love. Maybe that co-worker whose views are in direct opposition to yours. No one was ever argued into Catholicism, but if non-Christians see a strong example of lived Faith, that speaks louder than words.
