Mark 8:17-21 Aware of the discussion among his disciples, Jesus asked them “Do you still not see or understand? Are your hearts hardened? Do you have eyes but fail to see, and ears but fail to hear? And don’t you remember?……”
Jesus was referring to how he gave thanks unto the Father and used five loaves of bread and two small fish to feed five thousand people, and seven loaves of bread and few small fish to feed four thousand people. On both occasion there were left over.
Jesus is the master multiplier. If you let him, allow him to partner with you, he will take that which seems insignificant in your hands and use it to do mighty things. He did it for the the widow of a Prophet when he turned a small jar of olive oil in the hand of a poor widow into an oil depot, an oil making plant, from lack and insufficiency into abundance. 2 Kings 4:1-7
Will you give what you have in your hands, your talent, gifts, time ….. all to Jesus today. Let him transform it – multiply, perfect it and use it for your benefit, humanity, Church and the glory of the Father in heaven.
Be a vessel of honor in Christ hands, a channel of blessing, a thirst quencher. Let Jesus use your sorrow in time past to bring hope and joy to those that are sorrowful. Let Christ use your pain to soothe and heal, to bring solace to many. Yield your boat to the master like Peter, become fishers of men.
Allow Jesus to take hold of your gifts and talent to bring terror to the kingdom of darkness and salvation to the lost.
Yield your life today – your all, make it count. Jesus is Lord.
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
