“Men at Work”

Feeding the 5000

John 6:1-14

A miracle in slow motion     John 6:6

This story is a reminder that we easily focus on the problem rather than the provider.

This miracle is worth its special attention.

Expect leftovers     John 6:11

With Jesus God’s power becomes personal.

Jesus did not come to keep stomachs from growling, he came to keep souls from perishing.

A child-like faith      John 6:14

Every problem you face is an opportunity for God to bless you and teach you to believe.

Never doubt God or deny Him
