Luke 18:1-8, The Unjust Judge: A Study in Contrasts

At the end of Luke 17, Jesus described his future return as a fulfillment of the hope of his followers and as a day of dreadful judgment poured out on those who oppose him. The text for this Lord’s Day (Luke 18:1-8) continues the theme of the Lord’s return. In it, Jesus tells a parable to instruct the disciples to continue to pray, “Thy kingdom come,” even though the coming seems delayed. Pray with confidence that He will come and vindicate his people.
