The Teachings of Jesus - The Persistent Widow

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
