Three Loaves

Labels: , , .

"And He said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves; For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set before him? And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee. I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth." Luke 11:5-8

Midnight is a time which portrays events and activities at the crucial hour of the Scripture. It bears a sense of mounting crisis when deadline looms and time is running out.

Lend me
"All we receive from God is lent to us. We are not the owners, but the stewards of God's bounties. We must render an account to Him some day of all that was committed to our trust." August Van Ryn

Three loaves
1. The loaf of faith for the midnight of doubt
2. The loaf of hope for the midnight of despair
3. The loaf of love for the midnight of darkness
