12 May Christ Does What We Cannot
The crowd followed Jesus around the Sea of Galilee. The fifteen thousand people (five thousand men plus women and children) were hungry. Philip and Andrew counted the hungry people, they counted the money in their bag, they counted the amount of fish and bread. They did not, however, count on Christ. And he was standing right there! Yet the idea of soliciting his help did not dawn on them. Even so, Jesus went right to work. “Jesus took the loaves, and when he had given thanks, he distributed them to those who were seated, and as much fish as they were wanting, too” (John 6:11).
The impossible task of feeding “all these people” became the unforgettable miracle of all these people fed. What we cannot do, Christ does. The problems we face are opportunities for Christ to prove this point. Remember, friends, You are never alone.
