#0191 (Sermon Series: The Resistance pt.1 – Luke 18:1-8) – In this episode, we ask the age-old question: Where is God, and what is He up to when the world is hurting? The answer might surprise you and will certainly give you fresh hope!
In this sermon series, we dive into a message I taught on the parable of the persistent widow where we learn the power of faith, hope, and prayer as we navigate the perils of this world while working to see His will be done on earth.

Scripture from this episode:
Luke 18:1-8 ESV – 1 Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. 2 He said: “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared what people thought. 3 And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’ 4 “For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care what people think, 5 yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually come and attack me!’” 6 And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. 7 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? 8 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?”
1 John 5:19 ESV – 19 We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.
1 John 3:9 ESV – 9 No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God.
John 16:33 ESV – 33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
