Miracles (2)

Today we read about more miracles that Jesus did. In verses 30-44, we learn about Jesus feeding more than 5000 people. All the food that the disciples could find was five loaves of bread and two fish. “Jesus took the five loaves and two fish…and thanked God…all the people ate and were full” (verses 41-42). This was a wonderful miracle!
Then our verses tell us that Jesus came to some of His followers. These men were in a boat in the middle of a lake. During the night, Jesus walked on the water to the boat. That was a miracle, too.
In verses 53-56, we learn that Jesus healed many people. Even people who touched Jesus’ coat were healed. Verse 56b says, “They begged Jesus to let them touch any part of his coat. And all the people that touched him were healed.”
Jesus is not living on earth and doing miracles now. But we can read about these miracles in the Bible and learn that Jesus was loving and powerful. He is still loving and powerful today!
