Even dogs like ourselves are given the crumbs of God’s mercy.

Scripture: Mark 7:24-30

ESV Text: Mark 7:24-30


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 7 24 And from thence he arose, and went into the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and entered into an house, and would have no man know it: but he could not be hid. 25 For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet: 26 The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she besought him that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter. 27 But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it unto the dogs. 28 And she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children’s crumbs. 29 And he said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter. 30 And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed.(KJV)



Hymn: TLH 379:
I Do Not Come Because my Soul

— Organ Audio

1. I do not come because my soul 
Is free from sin and pure and whole 
And worthy of Thy grace; 
I do not speak to Thee because 
I’ve never justly kept Thy laws 
And dare to meet Thy face. 

2. I know that sin and guilt combine 
To reign o’er every thought of mine 
And torn from good to ill; 
I know that, when I try to be 
Upright and just and true to Thee, 
I am a sinner still. 

3. I know that often when I strive 
To keep a spark of love alive 
For Thee, the powers within 
Leap up in unsubmissive might 
And oft benumb my sense of right 
And pull me back to sin. 

4. I know that, though in doing good 
I spend my life, I never could 
Atone for all I’ve done; 
But though my sins are black as night, 
I dare to come before Thy sight 
Because I trust Thy Son. 

5. In Him alone my trust I place, 
Come boldly to Thy Throne of grace, 
And there commune with Thee. 
Salvation sure, O Lord, is mine, 
And, all unworthy, I am Thine, 
For Jesus died for me.
