THE LOAVES AND THE FISHES

In the Bible, Matthew 14:17-21, Jesus feeds 5000 men, plus the women and children who were with them.  Quite possibly more than 10,000 people, in toto.  He did this with five loaves of bread and two fish,  which makes this one of the most fascinating miracles that He ever did in His earthly ministry.  What did this miracle really entail; and what was necessary to have happened for Him to perform this miracle, which is recorded in Matthew, Mark, and John?

In John, 1st Chapter, Jesus is revealed to us as the Creator of all things (John 1:3).  Therefore it’s quite logical to think, or to realize, that Christ, the Creator, created these fish, and the fragments of bread, as He handed them to the disciples, and, subsequently, the disciples gave them ,to the people who were seated in groups of 50 and 100.  All of the people, men, women, and children ate, and all were satisfied and filled (Mark 6:37-44).

Beloved; what should this tell us in regard to the providential care of Christ for His children?  Why, it tells us that there is no end to what He alone can provide.  God, in whom all things live and move and have their being doesn’t run out of anything, because He is the One who makes all things new.  There is no limit to His ability to supply all of your needs, and mine.  He is the manufacturer, and the distributor of everything that we need; and he freely gives to all according to His sovereign will.

Not only is He the provider of all of our material needs; but He is the administrator of all of our spiritual needs.  He, who now sits on His throne at the right hand of God, the Father, is the One who gave His all for our redemption, who became sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him ( 2 Corinthians 5: 17-21).

Believe in Him, trust in Him, receive Him today.  He will save to the utmost, all who come to God the Father, through Him (Hebrews 7:25).
