Ryan's Message from Oct 17, 2010

King James Version (KJV)Matthew 15:22-28
22And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.
 23But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.
 24But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
 25Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.
 26But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.
 27And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.
 28Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

Additional Scripture
Mark 7:25-30, 
Matthew 7:7-8 

Reflection Questions
Do you ever act like the disciples, attempting to send away one who is truly in need of the Lord?
How can obstacles be viewed as an opportunity to grow more in your knowledge and love of Jesus?
What area of your life do you need to seek a crumb from the Lord?
How does your prayer life and relationship with the Lord show that you need Him?
