Wesley's Notes for Luke 18:8

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

  • Peter A. Okebukola
    The story of the Pharisee and the publican is instructive. God sees the heart. He desires us to be humble. He desires us to trust Him. He desires us not to be ostentatious in our expressions of prayers. He wants us to worship Him in spirit and in truth. May God help us to achieve these goals.

And to answer another, who jumped on your words, Yes! the Angels too had their time to stand for God in truth and overcome the Liar and the Adversary. I hope every Christian can learn from Jesus how to love each other.

    Steph: what angels overcome what?

    The unjust judge is a judge of this world which is corrupted by the illusion of wealth, that it is the equivalent of happiness. The young man who followed the commandments but wouldn't part with his wealth. The eye of the needle describes how we strive for wealth rather than Godly knowledge. The master says" we ought to pray always" The world is one place and Heaven is another. Angels overcom

    Humbleone?Are you saying God lets us remove our burdens,then drag them through a hole, into heaven? To pack on again? There never has been a gate:eye of the needle. There's a cord made from camels hair that won't go through the eye. Who can be saved? Only who are called: John6:44/washed Revelation1:5/Baptized with The Holy Ghost: Matthew 3:11/ you will be changed 2Corinthians 5:17 you will know!
