Feeding the 5000

Matt 14:13; Mark 6:30; Luke 9:10; John 6:1

Luke 9:10-17 (web)
The apostles, when they had returned, told him what things they had done.
He took them, and withdrew apart to a deserted place of a city called Bethsaida.
But the multitudes, perceiving it, followed him.
He welcomed them, and spoke to them of the Kingdom of God,
and he cured those who needed healing.

The day began to wear away; and the twelve came, and said to him, "Send the multitude away, that they may go into the surrounding villages and farms, and lodge, and get food, for we are here in a deserted place."

But he said to them, "You give them something to eat." They said, "We have no more than five loaves and two fish, unless we should go and buy food for all these people."
For they were about five thousand men.

He said to his disciples, "Make them sit down in groups of about fifty each."

They did so, and made them all sit down.
He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to the sky, he blessed them,
and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the multitude.
They ate, and were all filled.
They gathered up twelve baskets of broken pieces that were left over.

What does this reveal about Jesus?

That he can create something out of nothing.

An application:

In doing ministry we need not be overly concerned about how little we have. We just need to share our five loaves and two fish we've given to the Lord and let God do the rest.
