Topic: Provision Scripture: Mark 6:30–6:44

BIG IDEA: Jesus meets and exceeds all our needs above and beyond what we can see

1. When rest is insufficient, Jesus compassionately provides
But when you lose sight of Jesus, all you see is…
1A. Lost opportunity- vv. 33
When you focus on Jesus, you see…
2A. Leveraged opportunity- v. 34-

2. When resources are insufficient, Jesus exceedingly satisfies
But when you lose sight of Jesus, all you see is…
1A. Logical option- vv. 35-37a
2A. Large need- v. 37b-
3A. Limited resources- v. 38-
When you focus on Jesus, you see…
1A. Little is much with God-vv. 39-41-
3 perspective changers about the way God works:
1. Where we see a dead end, Jesus sees possibilities-
2. Where we see uselessness, Jesus sees potential-
3. Where we see scarcity, Jesus sees plenty-
2A. Leftovers reveal God’s inexhaustible abundance- vv. 42-44
