Let us muse again today from Matthew 5:34 and the theme of Jesus the king. We find this truth in our text today of poor stock for Holy service. They have asked already how they were going to feed such a crowd as this. He goes along and poses another question, how many loaves have ye? They answer probably in a low voice, seven loaves and a few little fish. Let us remember these loaves were about the size of crackers and the fish about the size of sardines. Spurgeon said more bones than fish. Is that not all we have to offer in service for our Lord, but oh how mighty our little becomes in the hands of our Almighty God.
Let us muse again today from Matthew 15:33 and the theme of Jesus the king .In this text we find the disciples living in the state of the forgotten Lord. The disciples asked where are we going to find so much bread for such a big crowd. They are like most of us when a problem arises we are consumed with the bigness of our need and the smallness of our ability to solve the problem. In this text they have forgotten the greatness of our Lord. There is no problem that He has not sent the solution long before the problem. Let us fear not but rest all of our problems in His care.
Let us muse again today from Matthew 15:30-31 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our text for today we find the truth of He healed them all. Jesus was and still is the great magnet that draws sinners unto Himself. There is a great multitude that came of dumb, maimed, lamed and blind. Each one of these have a spiritual implication. When they saw His wonder working in their lives they glorified the God of Israel. The dumb could hear, the maimed were made whole, the lame could walk, and the blind could see. What an instrument of increasing the faith of those watching. Oh, how our faith is increased when we see sinners saved. John said Jesus will not cast out any that come unto Him.
Let us muse again today from Matthew 15:32 and theme of Jesus the king. It is in our text for today we find our Lord satisfying cravings. This multitude has had a craving for heavenly food and has set under His teaching for three days. Oh what would it be to set under the Word incarnate and hear His teachings. After the three days the Bible said He had compassion upon the multitude because they hadn't eaten in three days. He would not send them away hungry to faint while in the way. I thanked Him for being a Savior that is not only concern with my spiritual well-being but my physical being as well. Oh what a Savior is mine.
Let us muse again today from Matthew 15:29 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our text for today we are given a thought on sitting while preaching. Our Lord loved the seaside and mountaintops. Whenever He had a word from God He had to but choose the place and the congregation would gather. He didn't have to go into what we call preacher style, no He just sat and shared. There were no church bells, twitter or Facebook announcements, but God would put it in the hearts of people to come. They would climb the mountain or gather along the seashore. Let us be assured today when we study to show ourselves approved of God and He gives a word we will not lack for someone to share the Word with.
