    Scripture I read a story when I was a student at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Chicago, IL. You will be appalled by the story I am about to relate to you.

  • Is There Faith On Earth?

    Contributed by Clair Sauer on Oct 16, 2013
     | 1,843 views

    Though the parable of the widow and unjust judge is difficult to hear, Jesus' lessons on the urgency of faith continues as he wonders, "When the Son of Man returns, will he find faith on earth?

    For the last two weeks, we have learned along with the disciples as Jesus has taught about faith. And what we have learned, in essence, is that we are not made “Christian” by the amount of faith we have, but by a faith that is focused on God and lived out in gratitude to God and others. ...read more

  • Alright, Already!

    Jesus asks, "When the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?" The parable of the widow and the unjust judge shows the kind of persistent faith that Christ would hope to find in each of us.

    based on 1 rating
     | 2,652 views

    Luke included the Parable of the Unjust Judge to encourage the people. The parable is about waiting and not losing hope, heart or faith. If we pray earnestly, faithfully and regularly, Jesus will find faith when he does return.

    Have you ever wanted something so much that you kept asking for it time and time again until you finally got what you wanted? If so, you can understand how the widow in the Parable of the Unjust Judge felt. She kept going to the judge until he finally decided to hear her case. In Jesus’ ...read more
