Jesus rarely makes Any human sense!
“But he answered, “You give them something to eat.” They said to him, “That would take more than half a year’s wages! Are we to go and spend that much on bread and give it to them to eat?” – Mark 6:37
So there you are in the middle of a remote location with 5000 of your closest friends, no food, its late and you are concerned that these people won’t be able to get back to civilization in time to get something to eat – what do you do?
Simple go ask your teacher to dismiss the group – to which He tells you to do something impossible. By this point some of His disciples are ready to split!
Can you just hear them, “what kind of nut job am I following? Feed them He says – might as well ask me to part the Red Sea!”
Until you can trust 100% absolutely in His provisions for each and every moment – His Abundant Life will always escape you!
This is why your righteousness must surpass that of the Pharisees (impossible legal task) and why you have to grasp the FULL value of the cross!
This is why By Grace Through Faith IS the Only way to receive His Life Here and Now! The first act of Faith is to know and accept that His Gift is All you need! His Grace IS sufficient and there IS Nothing more you can add to the old rugged cross – “IT IS FINISHED!!!”
Does this Love, this sacrifice, this Grace make any human sense whatsoever?
Faith is not by sight and Grace is Never by your power! The dividing wall between you and God has been forever breached by the nail pierced hands on the blood stained cross Once and for ALL! Just Believe and the riches of Heaven open Here and Now!
Life with Christ was never meant to be an endurance test to the end it was meant to be an Abundant Life of resting in the spiritual reality of Who Jesus IS and What He accomplished!
