John 6:1-13

1 Some time after this, Jesus crossed to the far shore of the Sea of Galilee (that is, the Sea of Tiberias), 

2 and a great crowd of people followed him because they saw the signs he had performed by healing the sick. 

3 Then Jesus went up on a mountainside and sat down with his disciples. 

4 The Jewish Passover Festival was near.

5 When Jesus looked up and saw a great crowd coming toward him, he said to Philip, “Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?” 

6 He asked this only to test him, for he already had in mind what he was going to do.

7 Philip answered him, “It would take more than half a year’s wages[a] to buy enough bread for each one to have a bite!”

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.

12 When they had all had enough to eat, he said to his disciples, “Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.” 

13 So they gathered them and filled twelve baskets with the pieces of the five barley loaves left over by those who had eaten.



We live in an age of never thinking we have enough

GOD - John 6:1-13

The invisible verse

Elisha and the jar of oil that was enough (2 Kings 1-7)

Similarity to Moses leading God’s people to freedom through the wilderness



What made Philip’s answer bad

Who can do better with what is in your hand?

The irony of doubting God


What you’d think Philip would have said

Jesus gave thanks over what was not enough

Did Jesus know? 


At first, we follow Jesus  because of what He can do for us…

God will never ask anything from you that He will not give to you

Prayer “Here I am”
