Luke 18:1-14

In this sermon title, “by the pound” refers to the woman pounding on the door of the unjust judge late at night. We can and should DEMAND justice; of ourselves, each other, and the world itself.

As We Seek Justice, Remember:

Even the unjust can do just things
Luke 18:1-8

  • v1 we’re told the lesson at the start: don’t give up in prayer
  • v2/6 notice the unjust judge gives into persistence
  • v7 God has His justice in mind the whole time
  • v8 Will WE keep God’s justice in our minds?

We are not the source of Justice
Luke 18:9-14

  • v9 we’re told the warning at the start: self-righteousness ISN’T
  • v10/12 “I’m not like other men” is a LIE to SELF
  • v13 the counter-truth: I need you, God!
  • v14 God sees our admission of need as JUST; we agree with HIM

when we lower ourselves, we can raise God up in us. Lift Him up so all may see God and be saved! (John 3:14)
