Great of Faith: The Beggar

 

There are only two times in all of the Bible when Jesus remarks that a person has “great faith.” One of those two times is when he is approached by a Canaanite woman who begs Jesus to heal her daughter. This woman is a foreigner, she’s ritually unclean. She’s interrupted Jesus when he’s looking for some down time. Her timing was awful. And, in case you missed it: she’s a woman.

 

But she won’t give up. She won’t let go. She appeals to our Lord’s compassion. She begs him for a gift of his mercy and grace. And her “great faith” is rewarded on the spot.

 

Please read this compelling story in Matthew 15:21-28. Then join us at 10:15 this Sunday morning January 19 as we consider together what it looks like to recognize the grace of Jesus and to receive it for yourself. Let’s be inspired together by the great faith of the beggar.
