Even More Than Enough For Leftovers


So why did Jesus used a little boy's lunch when He fed the five thousand by the Seat of Galilee? After all, He didn't need the two fish and five loaves of bread that his Mom or Dad packed for him that morning to accomplish this miracle.

Doctors, Nurses, Farmers, Grocers, Truckers, And More


Just before Jesus fed the five thousand, He told the disciples, “You give them something to eat.” Have you ever wondered why He did that? Certainly, He wanted them to trust in Him. It’s clear from John’s Gospel that when Philip asked about it He did this to test their faith. But why have them distribute it?

They Said It Couldn’t Be Done


It's interesting to note that shortly before Jesus fed the five thousand the disciples attempted to explain to Him that this was impossible. If you notice, He didn't debate it with them. He went ahead and showed them. In our weakness, we may underestimate our Savior as well.

We'll Add Another Cup of Water To The Soup?


Imagine you were one of the disciples. Our Savior had spent the day teaching the large crowd that had followed them to Bethsaida along the short of the Sea of Galilee. Now it was getting late. What Jesus told them next must have made their jaws drop. He told them, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.” What would you think?

A Load Off Your Feet .. And Your Soul


Do you ever wish like you could just get away from it all? Disturbing news. Medical concerns. Painful guilt from sin. Do you find yourself drained and exhausted? It’s worthy knowing that these go neither unnoticed nor untended by our Savior.

So Much More Than A "Free Lunch"


"There’s no such thing as a free lunch." I’m sure we’ve all heard that phrase at one time or another. So it may make us raise our eyebrow when we hear God's invitation in Isaiah, "Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost."

What's Next?


Covid, killer hornets, hurricane season. We’re halfway into 2020 and many people are beginning to wonder what’s coming next? Paul reminds us of the very reassuring answer to that question in God's Word.

Gavel-To-Gavel


Whenever there is an important case that’s about to make its way through the court, news outlets may promise to cover the entire proceeding from “gavel-to- gavel.” It’s a phrase used to describe everything that takes place between the first strike of the gavel, when the trial is begins, to the last strike of the gavel, when the judge announces the verdict and proceedings are closed. Here in Romans Paul describes the verdict in the most important case that could ever be heard.

If


Whenever you hear the word “if” it usually means whatever follows is conditional. Whatever comes next is usually up to you. “If,” is the kind of word that makes you raise your eyebrow to see and hear what comes next. However, in Romans 8 Paul uses this same tiny word, in a very different way, to announce something truly amazing!
