This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

Study 15 From The Book of Mark is: Mark 7: 24-37
Why did Jesus at first seem to refuse the woman’s request
(cf. Mt. 15:24), and why did He use such harsh words? What can we learn
from her response, and from the Lord’s answer to her further plea?
Assuming that the deaf and dumb man knew little or nothing
about Jesus due to his limitation, what would the strange actions of Jesus
mean to him? How would they help him to respond in faith?
Is there anything we can learn here about personal witness
from the example of those who brought their deaf and dumb friend to Jesus?
Note. Verse 27.
The ‘dogs’ is an expression of contempt and disgust. In many parts of the
East the dog is still basically a scavenger and by its very nature unclean and
a potential carrier of disease.
