What do you need? 

This was used as a opener to one of a summer term services. Read it slowly and allow Jesus to speak to you.


At the feeding of the 5000, Jesus met people's needs in a epic way. It made me wonder..what do you need? 

Feeding the 5000

What do you need?
 
Food maybe, but that's unlikely...what else? What do you really hunger for?
 
Peace?
Space?
Time to grieve?
That's what Jesus was seeking at this moment in the gospel.
 
Time to reconnect?
That's what the disciples seemed to need.
 
Healing?
Forgiveness?
Direction?
Jesus perceived that the crowds needed this.
 
What do you need?
 
Maybe it's something else.
 
What do you need?
 
Hope?
Love?
A meaningful relationship?
 
To know God is listening?
Time dedicated to God?
 
What do you need?
 
Rest?
More sleep?
   Or to be more fully awake?
 
What do you need?
 
Answers?
To understand?
To believe?
 
More confidence?
Or less arrogance?
 
What do you need?
 
Financial security?
Do you need to be more comfortable?
 Or do you need to be profoundly less so? Shaken out of your comfort zone?
 
What do you need?
 
Boldness?
 
What do you need?
 
Freedom from anxieties and stresses?
Freedom from shame?
Release from the pressure?
To break the cycle of addiction?
Reassurance that you're worth something? Because, by the way, you're worth the blood of the Son.
 
What do you need?
 
Our deepest need is Jesus, to meet all our needs, full stop.
 
What do you need?
 
Jesus asks: what have you got?
 
5 loaves; 2 fishes. Not much.
 
Bring it
    to God
 
And there will be
   leftovers.
