Five Loaves and Two Fishes and Five Thousand Men
By David Smith July 15, 2009
Five loaves and two small fishes for five thousand males.
Study John Six: one to fifteen for picturesque details.
Five is the figure of our imperfection as we are;
Five loaves our inadequacy, and in Christ we can go far.
Two fishes symbolizes conflict; two entirely different points of view.
Like body and spirit; or from law to saving grace;
All things become so new.
Thousands: uncountable, an infinite number
The harvest is great. There is no time to slumber.
Man in supply of his weakness; so very sad and true.
In the hand of Christ dividing; multiplying believers, in faith becomes so new.
And so we have the message; the gospel so vivid and sure.
Follow the I AM in scripture; faith to only endure.
As Jesus fed the five thousand plus
Believers carry the great commission; that’s why all the fuss.
Five loaves and two fishes; we are in desperate need.
Christ, the bread from heaven; the multitude we too can feed.
