Reading the four Gospels, we get the impression that Jesus is a difficult man to impress. However, in today’s story from the Gospel of Matthew (Matt. 15:21-28) we see that Jesus is deeply impressed— impressed by the faith of a desperate gentile woman whose daughter is in need of healing.
In today’s sermon, Coralie will take a deeper look at this story. What, specifically, is so impressive about this woman’s faith? How exactly is this woman a model for those who wish to have the gift of faith in their lives? What does Jesus do in response to such faith? These are some of the questions that Coralie will be touching upon in her sermon.
