We consider the case of the Syrophoenician woman, in response to whose faith, Jesus cast out the demon who was possessing her daughter.

We see two things: 

  • First that the Gospel, which was originally intended for the Jews, has now been offered to the Gentiles also, and 
  • Second, if you are to receive this Gospel, you must have a faith that takes hold of Jesus and will not let Him go until He blesses you. 

Such faith is a gift from God which He gives to those who seek Him.
