6. Heeds to faith.

Updated: Sep 6, 2021

"For such a reply, you may go; the demon has left your daughter."(Mark 7:29) How could a Gentile woman be certain about the identity of Jesus that she beseeched him saying, "Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me"? ( Matthew 15:22) Jesus decided to check out how grounded (well balanced and sensible) her faith is before granting her request. He pretended to ignore her saying, "First let the children eat all they want for it is not right to take the children's bread and toss it to their dogs' to which she replied with great wit that as a matter of fact "even the dogs under the table eat the children's crumbs." Flabbergasted (greatly astonished) by her reply, Jesus said, "Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted." (Matthew 15:28) If the 'crumbs' are a blessing to Gentiles, how much more the fullness in Christ will be to them? 'He has redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus ...' (Galatians 3:14) Remember today Christ is listening to our words of faith!
