Have you ever had a change of heart? What was it like? What caused it? This week we have a different kind of gospel story. Instead of Jesus trying the change the minds of others, we have a woman who begs Jesus to have a change of heart.
We see a woman who asks for mercy from Jesus and that he heal her daughter. Shockingly, Jesus basically tells her to go away. But she is tenacious and persists by saying, “even the dogs eat the crumbs from the children’s table.” What she means is that she believes she should be included in the family of God. Jesus has “a change of heart” and heals her daughter.
Listen on Youtube or Spotify to the rest of the sermon and about two people who have a tenacious faith.
