You may be thinking of
what importance these ordinary words have and it is a simple instruction from a
teacher to his disciples. Yes, no doubt, it’s a simple instruction to His disciples
by a loving Teacher, who was moved with compassion for the multitudes who
followed him on foot from cities and were listening to his words, hungry and
But, these simple words
have prepared the way for a great miracle, the only one mentioned in all four
The Bible says, Jesus
departed from Galilee by a boat to a deserted place by Himself. But when the
multitudes knew it, they followed him on foot from the cities. And when Jesus
went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them,
and healed their sick. When it was evening, His disciples came to Him, saying, “This
is a deserted place, and the hour is already late. Send the multitudes away
that they may go into the village and buy themselves food.”
Jesus said to them, “They do not need to go away. You give them
something to eat.” And the disciples said “We have here only five loves and
two fish.” Jesus said, “Bring them here to me.” He then blessed and broke and
gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes.
Those who have eaten the loaves were about five thousand men, besides women and
Though this instruction
has its own importance, the most important thing here is “who said it and to
whom”. It was said by Jesus Christ, “the Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting
Father and the Prince of Peace” to His disciples, who have Jesus with all His
qualities, qualifications and power with them, besides five loaves and two
fish. But for the multitudes, neither they have Jesus nor bread or fish with
As a follower of Jesus
Christ, when you have everything (Jesus) with you and the five loaves and two
fish (worldly blessings), the multitudes around you do not need to go away from
you seeking everything, but it is the responsibility of you to give to the have
When you have a
Wonderful Counsellor with you, why people around you should go to other people
or other places for the solution of the problems of their life? You share this
Wonder Counsellor with them, who is able to solve all the problems of all.
When you have a Mighty
God with you, why people should go to other gods seeking blessings in vain? You
give this Mighty God to them also so that they may seek and get all the
blessings they needed from the living God.
When you have an Everlasting
Father with you, why the multitudes move around you as orphans? Share the love
and compassion of your Everlasting Father to them also.
When you have a Prince
of Peace with you, why the hundreds of crores of people in this world spend
sleepless nights without having peace of mind? Share the heavenly peace the
Lord has given to you to them, so that they may also live in peace with the
Prince of Peace.
Jesus, the Saviour of
the world, wants from His people to share what they have received from Him to
the world. Don’t think that you have only five loaves and what are they among the
so many. Give it in the hands of the Lord. He will bless it and give it back in
your hands to feed the multitudes.
It is the bounden duty
and responsibility of every Christian to spread the message of salvation
through Christ in this world. Let people find solutions to their problems in Jesus.
Let they have also the blessings from the Mighty God. Let them also experience
the love and compassion of the everlasting Father. Let them live peacefully
with the Prince of Peace. And let them have everlasting life with Jesus Christ.

Jesus to the world? Jesus says, “They do not need to go away. You give them something
