“How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!” – Psalm 133
The loaves and the fishes symbolize God’s miraculous provision in the person of Jesus. They are also a picture of people coming together to share a meal. This unity occurred not just because food miraculously appeared but because Jesus was there. Any serious hope for unity comes through the faithful presence of Jesus Christ.
May the Wheatland Mission, and all churches, bear the faithful presence of Jesus wherever we are.
Almighty God, you have given your only Son to be for us a sacrifice for sin, and also an example of godly life: Give us grace to receive thankfully the fruits of this redeeming work, and to follow daily in the blessed steps of his most holy life; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
