6 And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says.7 And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? 7 And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off?
I believe Jesus is saying that God is a just God, He gives not just justice but mercy. He punished those who sinned, yet He gives mercy by sacrificing His son to be penalty for the sins of man. How can I not cry unto God day and night? He who listens and answers to His people and never puts me off.
The Tax Collector
13 “But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’
Humbly he asked for forgiveness, and I know God greatly forgives him. I pray that I may continue to be like that tax collector who knows who he is and knows who God is – a forgiving Father.
16 But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
I believe Jesus is saying that in order for us to belong to the Kingdom of God, we must be like little children who are innocent, humble, and confident to come boldly to Jesus. Unless we humble ourselves to Jesus and be like little children, we can’t enter His Kingdom. My prayer is that I may be child-like, fully dependent on Jesus for my growth.
The Rich Man
25 Indeed, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”
If I all have the things that I want in this world, will I still pray to God? This is my question always, for I know that I can come to God knowing that only in His greatness, I can have everything; and only in His presence, I am satisfied.
Nothing is Impossible
“What is impossible with man is possible with God.”
This is the answer why I am not fully dependent on man because like me they are things that they cannot do, and so I put my faith and trust 100% to Jesus for ONLY Him can do all things even the things that are impossible for man. With Jesus, I could not ask for more. He has done miracles, He conquered death, He gave His life for me, and He live again to be with me. Can any man do that? I don’t think so, but Jesus can. He already did.
Will they praise God too?
When all the people saw it, they also praised God.
In here the people saw the blind beggar healed. Jesus just said that by faith he will be healed, and so he was healed. The people saw this and so they praised God, I then asked God what can the people around me see that will make them praise God too? I don’t know the answer yet, but I pray that the time will come that when people saw me they will praise God more than me.
