“The Little Boy’s Lunch”.

Key Verse

“There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?” John 6:9

Text — John 6:1-11


When Jesus walked on the surface of the earth, He went about preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God. He was also healing the sick and delivering those oppressed by the devil. Some times He went into the wilderness and large crowds of people went after Him because they wanted to be with Him. One day, a little boy found himself amongst the huge crowd of people listening to the preaching of Jesus in the wilderness. He had his lunch of five loaves of bread and two pieces of fish in a basket. When Jesus noticed that the people listening to Him were tired and hungry, He asked His disciples to go and get food for them. They told Him there was no place in the wilderness to buy food. However, one of His disciples told Him about the little boy.

The multitude of people were told to sit on the grass. Jesus took the boy’s lunch, thanked God the Father and blessed it. He them told the disciples to share for everyone. The people were over five thousand (5,000) in number. They all ate and there were left overs. Like the little boy, you have the benefits of salvation from sin to share with other people. God wants to use you to reach out to them. As you yield what you have to Him – time, talent and many more, He will add more to your blessings.
