They Ate and Were Satisfied

They Ate and Were Satisfied

The disciples worried, “how we can satisfy all these (~5000) people?” Then Jesus had them sit down then he turned five loaves and two fish into more that enough for thousands of people.

He miraculously multiplied the food they had.

“And they ate and were satisfied; and they picked up seven large baskets full of what was left over of the broken pieces.” – Mark‬ ‭8:7-8‬ 

“And they are and were satisfied.”

Jesus Christ satisfies humanity physically, emotionally, and spiritually. He is capable of bringing purpose, excitement, provision, direction and friendship to our lives among many other things.

If we have him yet we still feel dissatisfied in many ways, then we don’t know him like we could (just like the disciples in this story). 

If we still feel dissatisfied with life then perhaps we only have a small glimpse of all that he is and we needlessly look elsewhere to find our satisfaction.

Is Jesus enough to satisfy you? Can he alone provide for you and undo your impossible problems and situations?
