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.
