• The Parable of the Unjust Judge Devotional

    Luke 18:1–8

    We should not think that our infinite God gets tired of hearing our pleas for justice. The Lord does not forget when injustice has been done, and He will certainly rectify it, though sometimes He waits until we have persistently called upon His name before He acts. But whether God intervenes immediately or seems to delay His response, we can be sure that He will do what is right. View Resource

  • Faith and Repentance Devotional

    Luke 18:9–14

    Repentance is serious business, but it is required only when actual sin has been committed. Knowing the difference between true sin and what others falsely assume to be sin demands the faithful study of Scripture. So, we should read God’s Word, looking for Him to tell us what is righteous and what is not. Moreover, we should expect to find ourselves rebuked when we read the Bible, and we should repent as soon as we feel the Spirit’s conviction. View Resource

  • Faith and Repentance Devotional

    Luke 18:9–14

    Repentance is not something that is only a part of our lives when we first come to Christ. Jesus tells us in the Lord’s Prayer that it is to be a daily practice (Matt. 6:12). When we go before the Lord, we must express sorrow for our sins and again confess our absolute dependence upon Him alone for salvation. Spend some time in prayer today focusing on repenting for your sin. Ask God to help you forgive sins committed against you, and thank Him again for His redemption. View Resource

  • The Pharisee and the Tax Collector Devotional

    Luke 18:9—14

    Turning to God’s mercy alone does not mean turning to some vague idea of a forgiving deity. Instead, we must rest in Christ alone for our salvation, trusting that He paid the penalty for our sins and was raised for our justification. As long as we think we must add our works to this, we have missed the gospel. Christ and Christ alone can justify us. View Resource
