Luke 9:13 “You give them something to eat.”

There are only two miracles of Jesus that appear in all four Gospels…the feeding of the 5,000 & the resurrection…but only in the Gospel of John are the disciples named who Jesus tested by telling them to, “Give these people something to eat.” Both Philip & Andrew were some of the first disciples to be called by Jesus. Both had professed early on that Jesus was indeed the Messiah. (John 1:41-45) Yet when confronted with what they felt was something impossible, they both crumbled. They only saw the throngs of people as a overwhelming & unsurmountable problem with no solution. But Jesus wasn’t looking for help when He told them to feed the people…He was looking for faith. We’re a lot like Philip & Andrew…we’re happily following along with Jesus when suddenly the impossible happens and that’s all we can see. But God is the God of the impossible…making a way when there is no way…and all He is asking for from us is faith.
