"A Faithful Witness”

A Faithful Witness

Luke 18:1-8

1 Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. 

He said: “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared what people thought. 

And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’

“For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care what people think, 

yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually come and attack me!’”

And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. 

And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? 

I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes,will he find faith on the earth?”

Important Takeaways

For the test of our testimony will always reveal who and what we place our faith in.

Often times, your adversity or obstacles will mature you toward a deeper reliance on God.

What might appear to be a “no” or a denial when pursuing something right, might be God telling you “not yet.”

The work of fighting injustice reveals our need to be persistent in seeking God and a faithful resolve to trusting God in the face of opposition.
