God Lives Up to His Reputation

Speaker : Seminarian Nick Naumann
Luke 18:1-8
Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart, 2 saying: “There was in a certain city a judge who did not fear God nor regard man. 3 Now there was a widow in that city; and she came to him, saying, ‘Get justice for me from my adversary.’ 4 And he would not for a while; but afterward he said within himself, ‘Though I do not fear God nor regard man, 5 yet because this widow troubles me I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.’ ”

6 Then the Lord said, “Hear what the unjust judge said. 7 And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? 8 I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”

Hymn: TLH 473, st. 1,3,4: The Church’s One Foundation

Hymnary.org Organ Audio

1. The Church’s one foundation 
Is Jesus Christ, her Lord; 
She is His new creation 
By water and the Word. 
From heaven He came and sought her 
To be His holy bride; 
With His own blood He bought her, 
And for her life He died. 

3. The Church shall never perish! 
Her dear Lord, to defend, 
To guide, sustain, and cherish, 
Is with her to the end. 
Though there be those that hate her. 
False sons within her pale, 
Against both foe and traitor 
She ever shall prevail. 

4. Though with a scornful wonder 
Men see her sore oppressed, 
By schisms rent asunder, 
By heresies distressed, 
Yet saints their watch are keeping; 
Their cry goes up, “How long?” 
And soon the night of weeping 
Shall be the morn of song.
