Celebrate Jesus!

“Jesus said to them, they need not go away; you give them something to eat.”

Matthew 14:16


So how could so many people be fed with so little food? Jesus fed 5000 people with only five loaves of bread and two fish. (Matthew 14:13-21) Consider this; the world was created by God with a word (Genesis 1) so Jesus feeds as the Word. Jesus was not as interested in the program as in the people it would serve. When Jesus says “feed them,” all are filled and are satisfied.  The miracle is a reality because Jesus works through us as we realize the calling to be the hands of Christ to a hungry world. Phillip, one of Jesus’ disciples, witnessed in a short one-year period Jesus feeding 5,000, then 4,000 people, then asked Jesus to “show him the Father,” since only miracles such as these could come from God. Jesus answered Phillip, “in fact the one who believes in me will also do greater works than these because I am going to the Father.” (John 14:12) What Jesus did was to empower the disciples and all those who believe (us included) by the power of the Holy Spirit to feed those who hunger not only for food but for the Word of God.  You have been blessed by God through Jesus to be the hands of Christ to a hungry world. Jesus did feed the masses when he walked the dusty trails 2,000 years ago and continues to feed the masses many times over through all those who believe.  Through the Body of Christ, the church, millions and millions of people are fed every day. Jesus continues to feed those who are hungry, and in fact continues to serve the beloved of God, which is everybody.  You are blessed to be a blessing as you respond to Jesus calling you to, “give them something to eat.”  Thank you Jesus for the privilege to serve.
