Feeding the Five Thousand – Matthew 14:15-21

Taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. And all ate and were filled; and they took up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve baskets full. And those who ate were about five thousand men, besides women and children. (Matthew 14:19-21)

Brothers and sister in Christ,

This week’s message is based on a very familiar story, one that we have heard dozens of times and likely read it many more times. Each time we hear a message or read a passage something different may be revealed to us.

Our passage today is generally considered to be the story of a miracle, something that challenges our contemporary sensibilities. Some look for rational explanations while others simply accept the story as a phenomenon within God’s infinite power and put any issue to rest. There are seemingly infinite possibilities or explanations that could be explored. In the end all these efforts are a misuse of our time and energy.

We need to identify within the passage, what is being said about the nature of God and what this means to us as we live out our earthly lives. This Sunday we expose Jesus’ compassion as it is manifested in the feeding of the five thousand. If your curiosity is peeked, then join us as we explore this passage.

Can you comprehend what it is like to not have your own home? Most cannot. The mission of Habitat is to provide a way. The most recent newsletter from Habitat provides insight in the numerous ways that it is making this happen. (See the JUMC Outreach portion of our website.)
