The Teachings of Jesus - The Persistent Widow

January 12, 2020

  There is always hope!

 

   Text: Luke 18:1-8 *

 

The Parable of the Persistent Widow 

 

THE CHARACTERS

  The Unrighteous Judge

               Holding distain for any authority other than his own

  The Widow

              Seeking legal protection from a court opponent

 

THE EVENTS

  The judge rejects her pleas for justice.

  The widow keeps coming to him to plead her case.

 

THE RESOLUTION

  The judge relents and gives her legal protection because she
      continues to bother him, and by continually coming to him
      he fears she will wear him out.

 

THE LESSON OF JESUS

Note that the unrighteous judge granted the widow’s request

   because of her persistence.

God will quickly bring justice for His elect who cry to Him day and night.

But when the Son of Man returns will He find faith on the earth?

 

                                THE TRUTHS FOR US

                        There is ALWAYS hope with God

                          We should PERSIST in prayer

             We should TRUST in God’s provision and timing

                       Never lose your sense of HUMOR
