Luke 18:1
And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;









(10) Will he delight himself?--It is only the godly who can say, "Whom have I in heaven but Thee, and there is none upon earth that I desire in comparison with Thee;" and again, "I will praise Thy name, because it is so comfortable;" but this man hath no promise that he can plead, and therefore no assurance of access at all times to the presence of God.

Verse 10. - Will he delight himself in the Almighty? A further ill result of hypocrisy is noted. Not only does it alienate God from us, but it nile,ares us from God. The hypocrite cannot "delight in the Almighty." He must shriek from him, tear him, dislike to dwell on the thought of his presence and realize it. His natural inclination must be to withdraw his thoughts from God, and give himself up to the worldliness which has been his attraction to assume the hypocrite's part. Will he always call upon God? Can be even be depended on not to renounce the service of God altogether? The mutual alienation above spoken of must tend to check communion, to disincline to prayer and calling upon God, to erect a barrier between the hypocrite and the Almighty, which, though for a while it may be insufficient to withstand the force of use and wont, will yet, in the long run, be sure to tell, and will either put an end to prayer altogether, or reduce it to a formality.
