Re:Verse passage – Matthew 14:14-21 (day four)

This miracle must be a very important lesson!  It is the only one included in all four Gospels.  When the disciples came to Jesus with the need to feed the people, Jesus must have felt some sadness.  The disciples had been with Him for about two years now and they did not think about the fact that Jesus could provide the solution Himself.  The ‘truth’ of the situation to the disciples was that there was not enough food to feed the multitudes (possibly as many as 25,000).  Just like the storm at sea appeared to them to be their death until Jesus spoke, the truth of the miraculous provision was not evident until Jesus spoke.  The ‘Truth’ was that Jesus was the Bread of Life.

How much time have you spent with Jesus?  Have you walked with Him just a short time or has it been a lifetime?  Do you recognize that the Truth is not known until Jesus weighs in?  It is not just what Jesus can provide for you…it is who He is and the salvation we have through Him!
