A LITTLE PLUS JESUS MEANS A LOT

MATT. 14:15-20

NOW, I DON’T MEAN FOR YOU TO THINK THAT THE ORDER IN WHICH I NAMED THEM HAVE ANYHTING TO DO WITH THEIR IMPORTANCE. IF IT HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH THEIR IMPORTANCE, I WOULD SAY JESUS, BREAD AND FISH.

I WANT TO TALK ABOUT BREAD AND FISH FIRST, BECAUSE I HAVE DISCOVERED THAT IN AND ON THIS CHRISTIAN JOURNEY, MOST OF US HAVE BREAD AND FISH, BUT WE’LL A LITTLE SHORT ON JESUS. BUT I WANT TO TALK ON BREAD AND FISH FIRST.

I THINK ALL OF YOU WILL AGREE WE’LL LIVING IN A SICK WORLD. SO MANY THINGS ARE GOING ON AND THE THING THAT WORRIES ME, I SEE TO MANY OF THE CHRISTIANS FOLDING. I HEAR TOO MANY CHRISTIANS SAYING THESE THINGS.

I DON’T QUITE UNDERSTAND, I HEAR TO MANY CHRISTIANS SAYING WELL, I DON’T KNOW WHAT WE GONNA DO. A CHILD OF GOD OUGHT TO ALWAYS KNOW.

NOW IF YOU DRIVE AN AUTOMOBILE, MOST OF US DO. WHEN YOU SEE DANGER COMING, AUTOMATICALLY, YOUR FOOT GO TO THE BRAKE. YOU DON’T HAVE TO WANDER, WHAT AM I GOING TO DO, YOU DON’T HAVE TO READ A BOOK TO SEE WHAT YOU GONNA DO. AUTOMATICALLY, YOUR FOOT GO TO THE BRAKE, I BELIEVE THOSE THAT KNOW THE LORD.

THOSE THAT TRUST IN GOD WHEN TROUBE COMES, THEY KNOW WHERE TO GO. THEY DON’T JUST SIT. I HEARD DAVID SAY WHEN MY HEART IS OVERWHELMED. THERE IS A ROCK THAT IS HIGHER THEN I AM.

YOU RECALL PAUL AND SILAS BEING IN JAIL. SILAS PROBABLY SAID TO PAUL,’ PAUL YOU TOLD ME TO COME DOWN HERE, YOU TOLD ME YOU DREAMED YOU HAD A VISION LAST NIGHT AND THE ANGEL TOLD YOU TO COME OVER HERE TO MACEDONIA. NOW THAT’S WHY YOU TOLD ME AND I CAME OVER HERE PAUL WITH YOU.

WE WERE SUPPOSE TO COME OVER HERE TO TELL SOME FOLK ABOUT SALVATION, AND TELL SOME FOLK ABOUT BEING FREE AND NOW WE’LL IN CAPTIVITY. WHAT HAPPENED PAUL, SOMETHING MUST HAVE WENT WRONG, CAUSE WE’LL IN JAIL, AND WE’LL NOT JUST IN JAIL, WE’LL OVER HERE IN THE MAXIMUM SECURITY’.

THE BIBLE SAYS THEY WERE OVER IN THE INNER CELL. I DON’T HEAR PAUL GETTING EXCITED, PAUL JUST SAID TO HIM CALMLY,’ I’LL TELL YOU WHAT SILAS, LET’S JUST SING AND PRAY.

I SEE TO MANY MORDERN DAY CHRISTIANS WHO FILL THE CHURCH PEWS EVERY SUNDAY, BUT WHEN TROUBLE COME I SEE THEM FOLDING. I LISTEN AT THE NEWS, I WANT TO KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE WORLD ALSO. I LISTEN AT THEM FOLK GIVING THEIR ANALYSIS. BUT WHEN IT COMES TO THE BUSINESS OF WHAT THE WORLD NEED, I DON’T LISTEN TO THEM.

I KNOW THE ANSWER IS IN GOD. BECAUSE MAN ANALIZES BUT GOD SPECIALIZES. IF YOU BELIEVED THIS YOU WOULDN’T BE COMPLAINING ALL THE TIME.

[1] I CAN’T MAKE IT

[2] INFLATION

INFLATION DOESN’T MEAN ANYTHING TO A CHRISTIAN. I’VE NEVER THOUGHT I COULDN’T MAKE IT. I DON’T CARE HOW HIGH THE PRICES GET. GOD’S GONNA PROVIDE FOR ME. WHERE MOST OF US GET IN TROUBLE AND WE’LL SO CONCERNED ABOUT THE HIGH INFLATION, WHEN WE CAN’T SAVE WHAT WE WANNA SAVE.

YOU WANT TO HAVE A BIG BANK ROLL, WELL, I DON’T HAVE A BIG BANK ROLL, BUT I’M A MILLIONAIRE.

OUR TEXT DEALS WITH A FAMILIAR SCRIPTURE, JESUS FEEDING THE FIVE THOUSAND. I WANT TO DEAL WITH THE ATTITUDE THAT THE DISCIPLES HAD. MANY OF OUR MORDERN DAY CHRISTIAN HAVE THE SAME TYPE ATTITUDE.

JESUS HAD BEEN WITH THE MULITUDE FOR SOME THREE DAYS NOW AND THEY WERE WINDING UP THEIR STAY OUT IN THE DESERT. THE DISCIPLES NOTICED THAT IT WAS GETTING TOWARD EVENING TIME AND THEY DIDN’T HAVE ANYTHING FOR SUPPER.

SO THESE GOOD CONCERNED MEN LIKE DISCIPLES OF JESUS OUGHT TO BE, THEY WERE CONCERNED MEN ABOUT THE MULTITUDE, AND SO, THEY CAME TO JESUS AND SAID,’ JESUS WE BETTER LET THE FOLK GO , SO THAT THEY MAY MAKE IT INTO TOWN BEFORE DARK.

DARK IS COMING, AND WE DON’T HAVE ANYTHING FOR THEM HERE’. JESUS SAID TO THEM,’ DON’T SEND THEM AWAY HUNGRY, THEY’LL FAINT BY THE WAYSIDE.

I WANT TO SAY TO THE CHRISTIAN,’’ SOMETIME THE REASON THAT MANY OF US GO LIKING IN THE CHURCH IS, WE GO AWAY SPIRITUALLY HUNGRY. WE JOIN THE CHURCH, BUT WE DON’T EAT GOD’S WORD. WE WON’T STUDY AND WE DON’;T LEARN GOD’S WORD. SO WE GO AWAY HUNGRY AND WE FAINT BY THE WAYSIDE.’

SO JESUS SAID NO, BUT I WANT YOU TO TAKE LITTLE INVENTORY. YOU CHECK THE CROWD HERE, THERE MUST BE SOME FOOD AROUND HERE SOMEWHERE. THE DISCIPLES SAID,’ WELL NOW JESUS, WE’VE ALREADY DONE THAT. WE HAVE DISCOVERED THAT THERE ARE FIVE LOAVES AND TWO FISH.
