  4. Sermons : Will God Find Faith Here?

    Psalm 119:97-104
    Luke 18:1-8

    Luke begins this parable by telling us he knows what we need. Then, he writes, Jesus told them a parable about their need to pray always and not to lose heart.

    Character #1: “In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor had respect for people.” From the earliest days, my friend Meg writes, Moses sat as judge for God’s people. Jethro, priest and his father in law, said Moses should “look for men who fear God, are trustworthy, and hate dishonest gain; set such men over them as officers” (Ex. 18:21). There were no juries, so the weaker members of the community depended upon them.1 But this judge NEITHER feared God nor had respect for people. Bad. Very bad.
