I love Cally’s post last week about Jesus feeding thousands with a few loaves of bread and some fish and the reminder that when they surrendered what they had, God multiplied it to provide even more than what they needed.

We love and serve an extravagant God.  A God who cares about the big and small details of our lives, but also one who sent His son to die for us so that ultimately we will never hunger of thirst again.  We have been given the most extravagant gift of all—eternal life. 

“I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.”
John 6:35 
All we have to do is come.
“Come, all you who are thirsty,
       come to the waters;
       and you who have no money,
       come, buy and eat!
       Come, buy wine and milk
       without money and without cost.
 Why spend money on what is not bread,
       and your labor on what does not satisfy?
       Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,
       and your soul will delight in the richest of fare.
 Give ear and come to me;
       hear me, that your soul may live.”
Isaiah 55:1-3
PS: This morning I read Sara Hagerty’s post on Uncomfortable Extravagance, and I promise it’s worth a read
