On Friday, September 9 at 6:00 PM the message "There Is a Lad Here" was given by Minister Christine Lee at Gratia Community Church in Sioux Falls, SD. The message was taken from John 6:1-13 and Amos 8:11-12.
Jesus always used great occasions to teach great lessons. Here the faith and sacrifice of the little boy's lunch were all that was necessary in order to produce the miracle of feeding many thousands of people. So too, small people with small faith can lead many to repentance.
Christine highlighted the fact that Jesus is the spiritual bread of the spiritual life. If one sees the world with spiritual eyes they will see the people really need this bread. If the believer has compassion on the lost crowds and gives all they have many may feast on the Bread of eternal Life.
Prayer was given by the members both present and absent, and for the Sunday service to be especially blessed and anointed.
