After the feeding of the 5000, the people are still “wowed’ by Jesus’ power. They want to see more. Jesus’ power, even his power to heal, however, are for a higher purpose. Jesus is inviting people into kingdom living, where our priorities are determined by the eternal, timeless, kingdom of God.

First Fruits 2 (MV)
