“Jesus crossed the Sea of Galilee…and a great crowd followed Him because they saw the signs He performed in healing the sick. Then Jesus went up on a mountainside and sat down. The Jewish Passover Festival was near…Jesus saw the crowd coming toward Him. He said to Philip, ‘Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?’ He asked this only to test him, for He already knew what He was going to do.
Philip said, ‘It would take more than half a year’s wages to buy enough bread for each one to have a bite!’…Andrew, spoke up, ‘Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?’ Jesus said, ‘Have the people sit down.’ There was plenty of grass to sit on. About five thousand men were there. Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and gave to those who were seated as much as they wanted. He did the same with the fish. When all had enough…He said, ‘Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.’ They filled twelve baskets with the left over pieces.” John 6:1-13
The Law Giver sat down once again on a mountain. You came to fulfill the Law we broke so we could sit down in green pastures. You set the Feast of Eternal Life before their hungry souls. There is nothing left to want when we have You. You still our waters. Everyone who comes by faith will be welcomed by You. All can be fed with Your life-changing words. Let us be like this child, giving all we have and receiving back more than we could ever need. Let nothing You give be wasted on us. Give us understanding of what You are going to do. And if not understanding, let us remember all we already know of You. We did not come for a mere performance; we came for You. Unlike the manna of the wilderness wandering, You won’t melt in the heat of the day. For You ARE the Son of God! In Jesus Name Forever
