Our humanity is synonymous with weakness, insufficiency, deficiency, inadequacy and limitations. This insufficiency reveals our pride and ignorance when we try to find solutions within our own human wisdom without making an appeal to the living God. This is what we find in John 6:1-15. Jesus brings two of his disciples to him to solve the problem at hand. He tests his disciples to see the depth of their faith even though he already knew the solution to the problem.
When Jesus posed a question in verse 5 and 6, we see human deficiency demonstrated in the response from Phillip and the other disciples. How did they respond to the question? Do they seek God in their responses? Listen in to find out why the disciples failed the test, and what lessons we can learn from this passage.
