GOD THE ONLY CREATOR AND SUSTAINER

[Original in German]

When the Master asked Philip (John 6:5), "Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?" it was for the purpose of testing him, for Christ Jesus knew well enough that it was not necessary to buy bread in order to feed the multitude. He knew the power divinely bestowed to provide through Spirit abundant food to meet every need. In our mortal concept of things, are we not still thinking as Philip thought? Do we not measure the possibility of adequate supply according to what is visible? Do we not believe that our supply is only that which is perceived by the material senses?

Jesus looked to God as the creator of all things and the source of all supply. He gave thanks for the food at hand and for the power to make divine abundance available to men. Then he broke the bread and distributed it to those who suffered lack. He never let himself be misled by the testimony of the senses, nor did he depend on another's abundant supply.
