Text: John 6:1-11
Who wants to do great things for Jesus?
When we aim to do great things for God, we are:
1. Unvalued by human society
People seek for easy income. Even so, children are forced to make money at a young age. Yet, to God, we are valued and loved.
2. Responsibly seeking Jesus
In John 6 where Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand, the crowd who followed Jesus has needs – healing, prayers and miracles. They followed Christ with expectations.
But among the crowd comes a boy who did great things despite his young age.
8 Another of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, spoke up, 9 “Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?”
10 Jesus said, “Have the people sit down.” There was plenty of grass in that place, and they sat down (about five thousand men were there). 11 Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted. He did the same with the fish.
If the boy in the Bible was used by Christ, how much more us who He also loves and keeps on blessing?
When we look forward, we must be prepared with all the circumstances. People, indeed, have a mind set to live in comfort. Still, God offer eternal life. If we want to embrace God’s teaching, we have to be responsible in advancing His kingdom.
We are responsible to God.
3. Willing to give one’s ALL
Never stop glorifying Jesus. Surrender everything to him. It maybe hard but God will help as long as we’re willing to follow.
Am I responsibly seeking Jesus?
Along the road to Jesus’ path, there are bumps present. But hold on. God is our help.
Am I willing to give everything for His glory?
Do great things for God’s glory.
