Let us muse again today from Matthew 14:21 and the theme of Jesus the king. It is here today we find our Lord feeds 5000 plus. If each man had one wife and often they had multiple wives there are here in attendance 10,000 people. If each had one child and often they had multiple children there would be as many as 15,000 here. Oh how our Lord is known for taking our little and making it big. He will take the gospel which is so little thought of today as a remedy for man’s depravity and change a multitude of people.
Let us muse again today from Matthew 14:20 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our study verse today we find Jesus satisfies. He blessed the bread, the fish, and all did eat. The all did eat is amazing. No one said I don’t like fish. They were all filled the word means satisfied to reach a place of I can’t eat any more. There were 12 baskets left over, our Lord always supplies more than needed. The Lord always gives much to those who share the bread of the gospel with others. These disciples left with much more than they started with.
Let us muse again today from Matthew 14:19 and the theme of Jesus the king.It is in our verse for study today the presence of Jesus. I am amazed that He had command over 15,000 women and children. He told them to sit down and His presence awed them into silent obedience. You would think they would say it was no use to sit down can God spread a table in the wilderness. Most would only give the poor some bread but our Lord gave them a banquet of bread and fish. He didn’t do it without inviting His Father to touch what He was doing. What a great honor to be fed by the Son of God.
Let us muse again today from Matthew 14:18 and the theme of Jesus the king. I see today our Lord tells His disciples to bring their limitations to Him. Our littles will go a long way if we bring them to Him. If we do not our little will remain little if we do not bring them to the Lord, but little becomes much even beyond calculation when it is in His hands.
Let us muse again today from Matthew 14:16 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our text we are reminded that solutions come before problems. He is the solution to all our problems and He has always been. He was the solution to the sin problem long before Adam and Eve fell into sin. John said in Revelation He was the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Jesus said, don’t send them away feed them. He is the bread of life and has the ability to take care of hopeless situations.
Let us muse again today from Matt 14:15 and the theme of Jesus the King. The multitude has been with them all day and night is coming quickly. They tell the Lord this is a desert place, the time is past, and if we don’t do something these people may starve to death. There suggested remedy was send them away. I am glad in the midst of this hopeless problem for human solution they did one thing right, they brought it to Jesus. In the midst of all our hopeless situations may they find us at Jesus feet.
Let us muse again today from Matthew 14:14 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our text today we see our Lord is moved by the multitude. Our Lord has gone by boat to a desert place to be alone but when He embarks from the boat He sees the multitude. He immediately is moved with compassion and begins to meet their greatest needs. He puts all of His needs to the side and begins to meet the needs of others. How can we as His servants do less than our Master.
