Women in Christ (logo) Notes from Nancy

 

 

“Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He find that faith on earth?" (Luke 18:8 Holman Christian Standard Bible) This question is asked by Jesus after the parable of the widow and the unjust judge.

Here was a woman living as a widow. It was probably one of the worst positions to be in for a woman at that time. She was not able to go out and make a living as many of us in the western society can today. She had some one who was causing her great trouble. She took her plea before a judge. But the judge she comes before is considered unjust. It would be enough to make a person give up, yet she persisted.

In Holding on to Faith, Scarlett Stough points out some of the things around us that can erode faith. How do we react to such things? Do we give up and give in? Do we have “that faith” to hang in there no matter what the circumstances are around us?

In our fourth installment on 1 Timothy 4:12, we take a look at how to Set an Example in Faith.
