Why Derek Chauvin's Conviction Is Evidence There Is a God

On April 20, 2021, Police Officer Derek Chauvin was convicted of murdering George Floyd. This case has captured the nation for almost a year now as those from all political perspectives and races have commonly cried out for "justice." Within a few short hours of deliberation, a jury of Chauvin's peers convicted him on all counts.

The reactions have ranged from Speaker Pelosi thanking George Floyd for "sacrificing his life for justice" to Candace Owens describing the verdict as "mob justice."

To me, this is evidence there is a God. Deep in the hearts of His created, male and female, is the concept of the need for justice. Everyone wants what they justly deserve. People who have been wronged want justice. Victims need justice.

This cry for justice is hardwired in God's creation. Regardless of the state of our relationship with Christ, we have a need for justice to be served. This is what we see on streets as mobs protest, and even riot; they are demanding justice.

We should not be surprised or shocked in what we are seeing. People are acting within the image and passion God placed in his creation. There is a supernatural answer for everything we see in the natural.

For those of us with a biblical worldview, how are we to react to the death of George Floyd and the conviction of Chauvin? How are we to pray?
