Mark chapter 7 verses 24 to 30 record the encounter if a Syrophencian woman with the Lord Jesus at the border of Tyre and Sidon. This woman grasps the opportunity to meet Christ, an opportunity which was quickly to pass. Like blind Bartimaeus, the two blind men at Jericho, Zacchaeus, the woman with the issue of blood and the blind man at the temple in John chpater 9, the passing Jesus of Nazareth was an opportunity to encounter God and find salvation, a once in a lifetime opportunity not to be missed. In humility she comes to Jesus on behalf of her demon possessed daughter seeking just a few crumbs from the masters table. This woman appreciated that it was not her great grasp of a small God that would save and deliver but rather her small, weak grasp of a great God. God does the saving we come in faith.
