“Where can we buy some bread for these people to eat?”
The spirit of the resurrection continues to fill us with strength and courage to live the characteristics of Jesus. Today is the scripture before he feeds the 5000 with the 5 loaves and 2 fishes.
Interestingly he asks this question to Philip,” where can we buy some bread for these people to eat?” It’s like he was testing his faith in a Jesus. Philip then states what he logical sees and thinks. Perhaps Jesus is trying to ask us questions on how we see ourselves living post resurrection. Maybe he is wants us to think about people or situations who/where we doubt evangelising to. With the glory of his rising, Jesus wants us to reflect and go back to try again in faith.
Who is it that Jesus would like us to support? Are we letting Him work through us? What words of comfort come to us as we reflect on the resurrection? It’s a challenge to keep our hearts ablaze on the mission, it’s easy to pick and choose when His glory shines through us. Our ever loving and gentle brother Jesus reminds us that the joy is great when the battle is won. Jesus is the one who performs miracles when we believe. How is Jesus calling us to believe in him today?
