Sermon for August 20th, 2017
Guest Preacher: Jason Pankau
In today’s lesson we see a big picture of mercy. Jesus has a gentile woman that comes to him seeking mercy for her daughter who is possessed by a demon. This story has always been a peculiar story for me because Jesus seems a little ruthless. Jesus first ignores and then escalates into what seems like insults. Why?
It’s important to recognize the posture of the woman who does not give up but is persistent with Jesus.
Take a listen to the message today and be challenged by God’s Word.
