A demonstration of power!
Posted on the , in Thoughts for the Week, by Ashley Hardingham
There’s that old quotation about power which is along the lines of, ‘Power reveals; when you give someone enough power to do what they have always wanted to do, you get to see what they have always wanted to do!’
Sunday mornings passage is a demonstration of power; the feeding, not of 5,000 people but of the 4,000 – Jesus responding to the practical need to feed a great multitude who are hungry. But the point is something different. The point is about what this reveals of the man Jesus.
Later in the passage we find that question explicitly stated, ‘Who do you say I am?’ and we are pushed for a response to that ourselves.
On Sunday evening we are delighted to welcome local youth-worker Sophie Benson who will be speaking at our Youth-In service on the subject of body-image.
