Godly Sarcasm

Description

Some people worship the “created” rather than the “Creator.” Today, remember the One true God.

“You are my witnesses. Is there any God besides me? No, there is no other Rock; I know not one.” Isaiah 44:8

I think this passage is rather funny. It’s like God looked around the universe and said, “Is there any other God besides me?” Then, in a micro-millisecond He answers, “Nope…there’s no other…I don’t know of one!” The whole context of this passage in Isaiah is in connection to the idol gods people had created. I love the sarcasm…

All those who make no-god idols don't amount to a thing, and what they work so hard at making is...nothing. Their little puppet-gods see nothing and know nothing — they're total embarrassments! Who would bother making gods that can't do anything, that can't “god”? Watch all the no-god worshipers hide their faces in shame. Watch the no-god makers slink off humiliated when their idols fail them. Get them out here in the open. Make them face God-reality…. Pretty stupid, wouldn't you say? Don't they have eyes in their heads? Are their brains working at all? Doesn't it occur to them to say, “Half of this tree I used for firewood: I baked bread, roasted meat, and enjoyed a good meal. And now I've used the rest to make an abominable no-god. Here I am praying to a stick of wood!” This lover of emptiness, of nothing, is so out of touch with reality, so far gone, that he can't even look at what he's doing, can't even look at the no-god stick of wood in his hand and say, “This is crazy.” (Isaiah 44:9-11, 18-20)

It’s not a whole lot different these days. People worship the “created” rather than the “Creator.” Today, take a moment to ponder and be His witness that there is no other God! “For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus.” No apologies!

Say This: “Father, I don’t care what the world preaches, what the media espouses, what is politically correct or what the surveys show…I believe in You – the Lord God Almighty and Jesus Christ Your Son. Is there any other God? I agree with You – I don’t know of any! In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
