More than Enough!

Jesus had taken His disciples away to a desert place to rest and to be renewed. It wasn’t long, apparently, before the crowds found them. Jesus, “moved with compassion,” ministered to them (Mark 6:33-34). However, they were hungry, tired and away from their usual sources of food (Verses 35-36). What to do? In Verses 37-44, Jesus meets the need: “He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say unto Him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them to eat? He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes. And He commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass. And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties. And when He had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, He looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to His disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided He among them all. And they did all eat, and were filled. And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes. And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.” This miracle was amazing and met an extreme need. A number of lessons could be drawn from this event, but there is one lesson that is seldom drawn and it is that multitudes are spiritually starving and are world-weary. When the “Bread of Life” and the “Meat” of the Word is offered, multitudes have partaken and more continue to partake. The supply never runs out; there is always more than enough! This excerpt from, “Come and Dine,” by C. B. WIdmeyer speaks of this truth: “Come and dine,” the Master calleth, “Come and dine”; you may feast at Jesus’ table all the time; He Who fed the multitude, turned the water into wine, to the hungry calleth now, come and dine.” Selah! Are we distributing His miraculous “food” to the people who are hungry and weary?    Ron
