Today we’re going to talk about persistence. As you know God is very persistent, he never gives up on us and keeps doing all He can to help us and He will faithfully and consistently be there when we need help. He wants us to be faithful and consistent as well. We’ll look at many records today; that will help drive home the fact that we just can’t give up. Let’s start in Luke 18.
