Discovering What It Means To Find Life In Jesus

Love Me

 

Date: September 9, 2018

 

Why did Jesus go to Tyre (modern day Lebanon)? In our reading this week from the Gospel of Mark he hints at an answer in saying “He entered a house and did not want anyone to know he was there.” It may be that Jesus needed some peace and quiet after having to interact with those extra grace required Pharisees and teachers of the law. Self righteous religious people are just not very appealing, are they?

 

Despite not wanting anyone to know where he was, Jesus was unable to keep his presence a secret. In this case, a Syro-Phoenician woman finds Jesus. Her daughter is possessed by a demon. It is her persistence and faith that makes things right for her once again.

 

What problems do we face? Maybe it’s a family issue like the Syro-Phoenician woman had. Maybe it’s a job challenge. Maybe it’s a financial challenge. Are we willing to come to Jesus with this challenge and trust that he will carry us through in his love and power? This is our call to commendable faith.
