St.John 6:2) says “And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased.”
Many people follow Jesus expecting to receive and never to give. Many so called believers want the miracles-signs-wonders-healings and financial blessings; they want the gifts of the spirit, but not the fruit of the spirit. As Christians we must understand that before we can ever get the blessings that so many of us desire, we must apprehend the character of God. Everybody wants to be blessed, but not many want to do what it takes to truly be blessed and that’s to walk in love-joy and the peace of God. You see in (St.John 6:2), the people followed Jesus because of the miracles he was able to perform, not because of their love for him or service to him.
Furthermore, if the Father didn’t do anything else for us, sending his Son to die for us would still be sufficient. Let’s get back to serving him for who he is, and not for what he is able to do for us because if we get back to serving him for who he is, then the other things will take care of themselves. In fact, we know this is true because Jesus said in (Matt 6:33) “But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” God is not going to allow us to do a work for him and let us go without. We must come to believe that if we take care of his business he will help us take care of our business as well. Be blessed and to God be all the glory, honor, dominion, power and majesty both now and forever, amen.
God Bless You
