         Special Service with Jan Aldridge

Mark 6:42-45   Jesus feed 5,000 people with 5 loaves and 2 fishes

We need to carry a childlike faith.  We haven’t heard it all or seen it all.

The disciples saw the miracle of the loaves and fishes being multiplies but they failed to consider the miracle.

Jesus was first moved with compassion for the people – the church needs compassion.

But – we’ve been hurt, and we carry scars.   The enemies goal is to wear us down, so you lose your stamina, you become tired of fighting.

The disciples wanted to send the people away.  We don’t have the money or resources.  Focus on what you do have!

What do you have?   What is it that you value?   Don’t become co-dependent on the things of this world.

Keep your child like faith.  The little boy gave what he had – 5 loaves, 2 fish.  People who lack are more sensitive than those who have a lot.  Bring what you have to Jesus.

Quit trying!  “BE STILL”!   God wants to get you structurally sound to handle what he wants you to do.

Be thankful for what you have!  God can’t trust you with any more if you are not thankful.  When you bless what you have it can be used.

The key is in the breaking – when you break, from your pride, rebellion God is able to use you.  Breaking is a defining moment.  Bowing down before the Lord is a breaking.

When Jesus blessed the bread and broke it, that’s when the multiplication began.  Jesus told the disciples to go and give.  God can take your little, break it, and give more than you started with.

What do you have?  Be thankful for it.  Bless it.  Allow it to be broken.  Then give what you have to others.
