What Man Among You
/

Luke, chapter 11, beginning at verse 5, “And He said to them, ‘Which of you shall have a friend, and go to him at midnight and say to him, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves; for a friend of mine has come to me on his journey, and I have nothing to set before him.””

Jesus in this passage talks about the incredible compassion of God. Most people, when they become comfortable and settled in their ways, cannot be roused to change direction, in spite of the cries outside of their places where they’ve found rest. The difference with God is that His heart can be moved to mercy when we cry out for others in their time of darkness.

“I say to you,” Jesus said, “though he will not rise and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence, he will rise and give him as much as he needs.”

It’s time to pray.
