the gospel for all! – march 30

Matthew 15.21-38, Highlighted Passage: 15:21-28

This is a strange passage and I have to confess to finding it a little difficult. But it is clear that one of the underlying messages that Matthew wants to make is that Jesus’ message of the kingdom is for all – not just the Jews. This Canaanite women represents the enemies of Israel and although at first Jesus seems to ignore her, in the end her daughter is healed.

So I need to remember the gospel is for everyone – not just the nice people – but even the people I consider to be my enemies – or even the enemies of God’s people. How will I demonstrate to them in my actions, that the gospel is for them?
