You Give Them Something to Eat (Luke 9:10-17) - 9/3/23

INTRO

  • Feeding the 5,000

  • In all four gospels

  • How soon the disciples forgot what they were capable of

  • The Lord’s compassion for His people

  • Trust God to do great things

THE DISCIPLES

  • Just off a spiritual high (short term mission trip)

  • Preaching and Healing

They lost their focus

  • Send the crowd away

  • Thet needed to see the big picture (Kingdom Focus)

  • The crowd needed to hear and receive (just like those they had previously impacted)

They have forgotten whom they serve/follow

  • The forgot who Jesus was

  • We have no more than 5 loaves and 2 fish

  • They had already witnessed miracles?

  • What changed?

  • If Jesus is asking… surely it will be done.

JESUS

  • He took them and withdrew

  • To strengthen, encourage, and TEACH

Showing compassion for the crowd

  • Welcomed them

  • Spoke the Kingdom to them

  • Cured them

What a great example for us

  • Love

  • Share

  • Serve

Teaching the disciples

  • Test of faith… You go do

  • I have given you the authority and power!

  • He knew the task was impossible for them

Acknowledging the Giver of all things

  • Bless this food

  • A picture of dependance and devotion

  • The Father, Son and Holy Spirit

Lessons to Learn

  1. The key to the Christian life is trusting in the Lord Proverbs 3:5-6

    1. And keep trusting….lifelong trusting

  • We are weak but He is strong 2 Corinthians 12:9

  • God is our provider

  • The Goal is the Spread of His Glory.

    • The acknowledgement of His Power and Authority

  • NOT OUR BLESSING

  • We have the privilege of joining God in His work

    • It is a supernatural (Spirit-filled) work

  • The Physical is temporary, but the spiritual is eternal
