Live Like It's True

What should you do when you don’t have enough? Maybe you’re stressed out, overwhelmed or burned out, and you just don’t have enough to do what Jesus has assigned to you today. If that’s you, I’m glad you’re joining us for this episode, because we’re going to talk about a situation where Jesus’s disciples were feeling exactly like that.

We’re discussing a story from Mark 6, where we’re going to see Jesus take what little the disciples have and multiply it, and I’m going to invite you to live like this story is true!

Bible Passage: Mark 6:30-44

The Feeding of the 5,000
The True Story of the Feeding of the Five Thousand is found in Mark 6:30-44. It's an astonishing story of not having enough and Jesus multiplying what they did have to satisfy everyone. How can we live like this story is true?

Share the Story
Were you amazed by you amazed by Jenn’s story about—in her missions training, going through the Stories of Hope Workbook? I compared sharing these Bible stories, one at a time, with leaving “bread crumbs” for her friend—which lead to Jesus.  Would you be willing to share just one story (a bread crumb?) with a friend who doesn’t yet know Jesus?  Pray for His direction.

Live the Story

Jesus multiplied what they had. What little amount do you have? What is God asking you to place in his hands, knowing that He can multiply it if He wants?
