Sit Down on the Grass

What would it be like if Jesus was on Earth today?

What if He came up on a canoe to the shore near a housing development and started healing sick people as crowds began to gather?

What would it be like if He took a little boy’s lunchbox and His disciples started feeding the entire crowd from what was in it?

What would it be like if Jesus was in your neighborhood?

Would you believe?

When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick.

 As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.”

 Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.”

 “We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they answered.

 “Bring them here to me,” he said.  And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people.  They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.
