Satisfied in Jesus
This week we’ll look at the well-known account of Jesus feeding the five thousand in Mark 6:30-44. The miracle itself is obviously quite a scene: Jesus takes just five loaves and two fish and multiplies it to satisfy the hungry stomachs of thousands.
But what makes it all the more striking is that it follows Mark’s account of the murderous and lustful banquet of Herod. At that banquet, Herod looks for satisfaction in all the wrong places and never finds it. But at Jesus’ humble banquet in the country, the people looked to Jesus and ate and were satisfied. This Sunday we’ll take some time to look at what it means to be satisfied in Christ.
In the meantime, read Mark 6:30-44 a few times before Sunday and prepare your heart to worship and hunger for Jesus.
Grace and peace,
