Jesus once fed more than 5,000 people using only five loaves of bread and two fish. With something as amazing as that, you’d be right to think that there are a number of things Jesus’ accomplishes with miracles. Here are a few:
- Jesus’ miracles comfort people who are trapped and oppressed in the world.
- Jesus’ miracles warn those who are too much in love with the world.
- Jesus’ miracles show how God uses ordinary things to accomplish extraordinary ends.
- Jesus’ miracles point to his suffering and exaltation.
I explained all this and read the record of this particular miracle in the sermon I preached last Sunday morning. Give it a listen. It’s about 30 minutes.
