Only Faith moves God.

In Matthew 15:21-28, Jesus and His disciples left Israel and went to Phoenicia, around Tyre. There came a Phonician woman crying out to Jesus to heal her daughter. Jesus didn’t answer her. She persisted and cried out more. Even the disciples ask Jesus to get rid of her. Finally Jesus said, I’m sent to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. She fell before Jesus worshipping and said, Lord help me. Jesus said, it’s not right to give the children’s bread to the dogs. She said, even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from the master’s table. Jesus answered, great is your faith. It will be done as you asked. Her daughter was healed that hour. Even the worst sinner can turn to God and be forgiven. Faith, trusting and believing, is what moves God. It’s the key to entering heaven. By faith people are justified.
