Jesus Is Enough


Sunday (11/05), gather with your church family as we turn our attention to Matthew 14:13-21. Jesus, who had been facing increasing opposition, heard about the death of John the Baptist. Upon hearing, He left the disciples to go and spend time alone with His Father in heaven. He grieved over John's death and Israel's loss of a vocal proponent of speaking unashamedly and courageously the unfiltered truth of God's Word.

His disciples came to Him, reporting everything they had experienced from their short-term ministry trip. One can imagine how their emotions swung from exuberance to sadness at the news of John's death. Jesus, knowing they were exhausted, told them to come aside with Him so He could minister to them.

Jesus' words were no sooner out of His mouth when He saw a great multitude following them along the shoreline of the sea of Galilee, coming straight for them. Instead of shoeing them away so He and the disciples could rest and deal with their grief, He began to teach them many things concerning the Kingdom, and afterward, He healed all those who were sick.
Sometime during His ministry, some disciples came and told Him that the hour was late, the crowd was tired and hungry, and there was nowhere to buy food. Jesus' response shook them to their core and tested them beyond anything they had faced.

All four gospel writers recorded the miracle of feeding the five thousand men plus women and children. We can learn many lessons from it, but this truth can sum all of them up: Jesus is enough!!

I look forward to our time together. Please pray for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the entire Calvary Chapel family.
There are several opportunities for worship. On-campus (10:00 am), drive-in church (92.1fm), and online (Facebook, YouTube: Calvary Inverness); (website:
