“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Luke 18:8

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus asked,

“…yet, when the Son of Man comes,

will He find faith on earth?”

.

– Luke 18:8 (NRSV)

.

REFLECTION…

.

This is serious food for thought!

It comes directly from Jesus Himself,

who gives us a key warning

about the need to remain firm in the faith

– and we need to remember that faith and prayer go hand in hand.

.

Jesus had promised us,

“I am always with you,

to the end of the age” (Mat 28:20)

and that fills us with encouragement and determination.

Yet, when He asks

“when the Son of Man comes,

will He find faith on earth?”

it is a serious and sincere warning.

.

Our Lord, therefore, urges us to stay watchful

and to persevere in the faith

and in prayer,

even though people all around us

may be falling away

and consciously turning their backs on the faith

and focusing only on themselves and their immediate needs.

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

"In order to pray, let us believe;

and for our faith not to weaken, let us pray.

Faith causes prayer to grow,

and when prayer grows our faith is strengthened."

.

– St. Augustine

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord, every day help me live my faith like I knew You were coming tomorrow!
