slide3

This episode takes place after Jesus healed an invalid (Jn 5:1-15).

    • Everyone knew what Jesus had done.
    • The crowds follow Jesus because they, too, need healing.
      • “When Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick” (Matt 14:14).
      • “The multitudes knew it, they followed Him; and He received them and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who had need of healing” (Lk 9:11).
slide4

The people also need something to eat.

    • “Where shall we buy bread, that these may eat?” (v 5).
    • “When it was evening, His disciples came to Him, saying, ‘This is a deserted place, and the hour is already late. Send the multitudes away, that they may go into the villages and buy themselves food’” (Matt 14:15).
  • The crowd Jesus encounters had some real needs.
    • Many are sick, perhaps with diseases no doctor can cure.
    • They are hungry, and far from a place to find food.
slide7

When He sees the crowd, Jesus has compassion.

    • He has already asked Philip where they’re going to buy bread for the people to eat.
      • “Two hundred denarii worth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may have a little,” v 7.
      • Do we sometimes want to keep our distance from hurting people?
    • Andrew: “There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two small fish, but what are they among so many?” v 9.
      • Sometimes, like Andrew, we want to help but feel so inadequate.
slide8

This text shows the inadequacies of the apostles.

    • Philip couldn’t come up with enough money.
    • Andrew couldn’t come up with enough food.
  • Jesus can help!
slide10

Jesus will help us when we need help, too.

    • Sometimes the response isn’t immediate.
      • “He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart” (Lk 18:1).
      • If help is always immediate, why “pray and not lose heart”?
slide11

At times, God does help us immediately.

    • Forgiveness is immediate.
      • “Now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord” (Acts 22:16).
    • Comfort can be immediate.
      • “[Cast] all your care upon Him, for He cares for you” (1 Pet 5:7).
slide12

How will we respond when others need our help.

    • There is great danger in waiting to help.
      • “I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work” (Jn 9:4).
      • “To him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin” (Js 4:17).
    • Will we wait when others need us, or will we help as soon as possible?
