The God of Plenty

Have you ever known someone who’d give you their home when you just asked for a night’s shelter?
Gave you their whole life when you just asked for some companionship?
Gave you more than a meal when you asked for a morsel.

In context, 5000 pax or more is almost 4 times the capacity of our church when filled to the brim! Actually, we all should have.
That’s Jesus. He always gave the best and in full measure.

There is no common sense to what Jesus did and continues to do,just pure immeasurable love, where the impossible  disappears.
If we only use common sense and be what is natural for us (like being good only to those whom we like),
we’d never be able to be truly charitable and love in the true Christian sense.

How do we tap into our faith, and do more than what we could possibly envision?
How do we live in a way that demonstrates God is unmistakably alive in our community, “to live a life worthy of the calling we have received”?
