Theme: Enacted Hope
Scripture: Luke 9:10-17; Ephesians 1:15-23
Today we look at the story of Jesus feeding the 5000 and explore how Jesus meets the needs of the people in an incredible way. We consider how this story points to something much bigger – the eternal Christian hope in Jesus. We will explore this hope and then discuss what this means for how we live today. We are invited to meet with others, share in the feast of the Kingdom as a prophetic sign of our future hope in heaven and to welcome others to that experience.
For further reflection:
Read Colossians 1:3-13. How does this hope help us in all the ups and downs of life? How are we sharing the Good News of Jesus and how it has changed our lives?
