“An Undeniable Evidence”

Key Verse

“And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The LORD, he is the God; the LORD, he is the God” (1 Kings 18:39).

TEXT — 1 kings 18:19-39


Evidence is a testimony, writing, material object or any other thing presented to the senses that is offered to prove the existence or non-existence of a fact. Clear and convincing evidence is one that persuades a reasonable person to have a firm belief that a proposition is more likely true. It is a higher standard of proof that cannot be refuted.

Prophet Elijah challenged the children of Israel to prove which is true worship – serving God or Baal. The Israelites, under the reign of Ahab and Jezebel, had gone very far away from the Lord. They had given themselves to the idolatrous worship of Baal. In the text, Elijah decided to call the whole nation to a decision. The God that proves Himself by sending fire miraculously to burn the sacrifice made to Him would be the true God they would serve. After the prophets of Baal had tried and failed, Elijah took over the stage. God answered by fire. The evidence was so clear and irrefutable that all bowed to acknowledge Him as the Lord.

With the god of materialism threatening to take over the lives of many in these last days and many beginning to question and doubt the existence of God and His presence and control of the world, there is the need for Christians and indeed the Church to produce sound and convincing evidences that will draw the world back to God.

Our lives must bear witness to God’s power. They must be so convincing that the unbelieving and doubters would not be able to gainsay or resist. This is why we must work on our faith in God and our relationship with Him. The world will believe and come to bow their knees before the Lord when our lives and faith in God produce strong enough evidence.

Thought for the day

Show the world by your life and action your God is real.
