Matt 15:27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table. KJV
In this series concerning the Syrophoenician woman and the healing of her daughter, we find faith and humility working together in submission to truth producing miraculous results. Truth is to be spoken in love, but that does not mean that at times it can’t be a tough pill to swallow. As we submit to the truth with humility and faith the Lord is faithful to manifest His resurrection life in our lives.
Part 3– In today’s message we look at the account of Jesus returning to His own hometown to minister. The Syrophoenician woman received the truth in humility and rejected pride, this led to the deliverance of her daughter. The people in Jesus home town did not follow this pattern, they chose natural knowledge of Jesus over spiritual knowledge. When we place improper emphasis on humanity we will miss out on divinity.
Proverbs 26:16 – A self-righteous person is convinced he’s smarter than seven wise counselors who tell him the truth. TPT
