God Doesn't Need You to Defend Him

Will you argue God’s case for Him? -Job 13:7-8

If you’re a Christian, people are going to argue with you. They’re going to try to prove you wrong. They’re going to try to prove God wrong. “Prove” he doesn’t exist. They’re going to try to make you look stupid.

Do you know it’s not your job to defend God?

I love what Jesus said to the leading priests and teachers when they asked Him if He was the messiah. He said, “If I tell you, you won’t believe me. And if I ask you a question, you won’t answer.”

Most people that will want to argue with you, won’t believe whatever you say anyway, so don’t waste your time.

My friend, Zack Blair, often says, “People can argue about the existence of God, but they can’t argue my experience with Him.” What God has done in your life should be the only defense God needs!

Romans 1:19 says, “20 For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.”

You can see God in everything, from His creation, to His people, to His Word. People that don’t see God, simply choose not to.

Our job is to  live for God & preach the Word of God. It’s up to the person hearing, whether or not they’ll believe it. If they’ll believe it, they’ll see God do an incredible work in their life. If they don’t, they’ll miss out on what God has planned for them.

Don’t waste your life arguing with people over things they won’t believe no matter what. God is fully capable of defending Himself! God is working in their life and they don’t even know it! God always gives the increase!
