The Way of Provision

Text: Mark 6:30-56
Rev. John Downs

As we consider today’s text, we see Jesus providing for his followers even in the desolate places of their lives, with echoes of God’s provision for the children of Israel following the exodus, and for John the Baptist in his wilderness ministry. In the difficult strivings of life when we are figuratively rowing into the headwinds, he is also present. Our Messiah provides what we need for flourishing, and we take hold of his provision through Word and sacrament.
