Today’s message, titled The Judge and the Widow, is delivered by Rev Brad Rice.
The Gospel reading is taken from Luke 18:1-8
Jesus told them a parable about their need to pray always and not to lose heart.
He said, “In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor had respect for people. In that city there was a widow who kept coming to him and saying. ‘Grant me justice against my opponent.’
For a while he refused; but later he said to himself, ‘Though I have no fear of God, and no respect for anyone, yet, because this widow keeps bothering me, I will grant her justice, so that she may not wear me out by continually coming.”
And the Lord said, ‘Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God grant justice to the chosen ones who cry out day and night? Will God delay long in helping them? I tell you, God will quickly grant justice to them And yet, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?'”
