Sunday Worship 10:00am in the Sanctuary  

Scripture Reading: Matthew 15:21-28

The Canaanite mother in our text this week is like many other women in the Bible. She recognizes Jesus and knows full well what he can do. She calls upon Jesus to help her daughter who is tormented by a demon. Even in the midst of her shouting, Jesus meets her with silence. When Jesus finally responds, it is to claim that he has been sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. The mother does not let up on her desire for Jesus' help. The woman is stubborn, determined, and knows what she wants from him. If she was a witness to the earlier feeding of the crowd, she knows Jesus can provide what she is asking for. The Canaanite woman challenges me to think about what I want to see healed. What I am stubborn enough to demand from Jesus?
