When you think about God what ideas and images come to mind? Do you tend to think of God as cold, distant and largely removed from everyday life? Do you see God as critical and judgmental? Or do you tend to think of God as benevolent and kind? Dallas Willard wrote, "the single most important thing in a person's mind is our idea of God and its associated images." Our negative experiences in life can cause our views of God to be distorted and damaged. These distortions have tremendous influence on how we then interact with God (or don't) and how we view ourselves and others. It is essential that we base our views of God on Jesus as He is revealed in the Bible. If our view of God is not at least as loving as the prodigal son's father in Luke 15 then we have work to do!
Join us as we dive into the powerful parable Jesus tells about the persistent widow and the unjust judge in Luke 18:1-8. Through this teaching Jesus brings us a helpful and needed perspective on who God is and how we can learn to pray and not give up! Given all that is going on in the world this is a needed and timely message of hope!
