A woman with a demon-possessed daughter comes to Jesus.  She is a Canaanite- an outsider to God’s people.  Jesus at first reminds her that he has come first for the people of Israel.  But she understands something perhaps even his own disciples do not understand.  She understands that God’s grace abounds to all nations and crosses all ethnic, social, and cultural boundaries. The Kingdom of God has come and is beginning to take shape- people from Gentile lands are coming to Jesus for healing.

What kind of love is this?  Amazing Love!

Amazing Love- by Graham Kendrick

My Lord what love is this
That pays so dearly
That I the guilty one
May go free

Chorus
Amazing love O what sacrifice
The Son of God giv’n for me
My debt He pays and my death He dies
That I might live
That I might live

And so they watched Him die
Despised rejected
But oh the blood He shed
Flowed for me

Chorus
Amazing love O what sacrifice
The Son of God giv’n for me
My debt He pays and my death He dies
That I might live
That I might live

And now this love of Christ
Shall flow like rivers
Come wash your guilt away
Live again

Chorus
Amazing love O what sacrifice
The Son of God giv’n for me
My debt He pays and my death He dies
That I might live
That I might live
