Deep Lessons Learned

Text: John 6:12-14


Jesus did not just perform an outstanding miracle. He had taught many deep and precious lessons to both the multitude and His own disciples.

“So when they were filled, He said to His disciples, ‘Gather up the fragments that remain, so that nothing is lost.’ Therefore they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves which were left over by those who had eaten. Then those men, when they had seen the sign that Jesus did, said, ‘This is truly the Prophet who is to come into the world.’”
