Sermon Notes

You’ve heard it said, a faith that cannot be tested is a faith that cannot be trusted…so how do you pass the test? Discover how to navigate tests and trials in life by looking to the story of Jesus feeding the 5,000.


  • Jesus and his disciples encounter an “unsolvable problem”
  • The greatest miracles usually follow the most bewildering behavior
  • Believe that God is preparing to do something good
  • It’s easy to shift into human understanding wherever you’re the most familiar 
  • This “unsolvable problem” is followed by a heart of compassion 
  • Some of the greatest things God will ever do in your life will come as an interruption in the moment 
  • Amidst the “unsolvable problem” there is an “unlikely solution”
  • A seed seldom looks like the Harvest is contains
  • The recipe God wants to use for the miraculous in your life is exactly whats already in your life
  • God has provided you with everything you need 
  • The greatest danger is that when you’ve been given a little you wont use it to let God do what he wants to do through you
  • You can’t despise the smallness of your resources
  • Jesus gave thanks for the little they DID have 
  • They were looking at an impossible situation with an unlikely solution and Jesus gave thanks to God
  • Things begin to change when you have a grateful spirit in the midst of a great problem 
  • Jesus always blesses what he allows to be broken 
  • If there’s brokenness in your life, God is getting ready to bless you
  • If in brokenness you put yourself in Jesus’ hands, the brokenness will be a precursor to multiplication
  • Jesus’ heart’s desire is that you would not just receive from others but also influence others


  • John 6:1-14
  • Mark 6:34
  • Matthew 14:21
  • John 6:21
