John 6:5 “When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat”
One thing that distinguished Jesus was the fact that he was always thinking about giving out value to people. He is always less concerned about himself.
When he saw the great company, all that came to his mind was what to give them. How to satisfy them was uppermost in his heart, so he asked Philip about the possibility of buying bread to satisfy the people.
A great lesson to be learnt here is this; you must develop the ability and desire to meet needs if you will truly have a great company! The more needs you meet the greater your influence. You must be able to always see beyond “you”. The Lord already kept the possibility of meeting needs on our inside.
You must develop an insatiable hunger for enlargement and expansion. The reason God will bring a great company around you is because he want you to give them value. God is a giver and anyone who gives receives. The harvest is usually greater than the seed.
When you see people, what normally come to your mind? Is it how to get them bread to eat or how to collect bread from them? The principle of the Kingdom centers around meeting needs. Hear this:
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
God is a consistent, perennial unrepentant Giver and that is what gave Him the capacity to handle the whole world. God doesn’t have any problems in bringing a great company around you, the only challenge is what you will do with them. If your reasoning is how to give them “bread”, you will never lack a great company.
The disciples doesn’t seem to care about the multitude but Jesus sure does.
Friend, we serve a Master that truly cares. Every time he thinks about us, his desire is that our desires should be met, aren’t you glad you serve this God?
