Wesley's Notes for Luke 18:8


18:8 Yet when the Son of man cometh, will he find faith upon earth - Yet notwithstanding all the instances both of his long suffering and of his justice, whenever he shall remarkably appear, against their enemies in this age or in after ages, how few true believers will be found upon earth!


People's Bible Notes for Luke 18:8


Lu 18:8 Shall he find faith on the earth? Prayer is the utterance of faith. Prayerlessness is proof of unbelief. The Lord, pained by the unbelief of even his disciples, shows in these words what a burden to him is our unbelief (see Mt 17:17).

Discussion for Luke 18

  • J t woolard
    I confess to the Lord often about how weary I get waiting on His answer. But I have to remind myself that He has not forgotten me, He Loves me and He knows what is best for me. In reality I understand that I do not know what God knows therefore I must put all of my faith and trust in Him. That requires waiting on Him no matter how uneasy it seems.
