‘Now there were some Greeks among those who went up to worship … they came to Philip … with a request, “Sir,” they said, “we would see Jesus.”’
John 12:20, 21
The world was looking for Jesus; a larger crowd than the disciples ever imagined.
Jesus said, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds…
… The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honour the one who serves me.” John 12:23-26
‘Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously… And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work…Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness….Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift.’
2 Corinthians 9:6-15
Whether it is the offering of a few loaves and fish or the offering of a life the miracle is always the work of Jesus who is, alone, the indescribable gift of God, the bread of life for all who believe in Him.
