v. 14, 40, 47; 20:31 has the emphasis of pointing people to Christ
here then are some lessons for believers:
I. Source Material Never Limits God [v. 5-7]
Remember He made the world out of nothing [ex nihilo] so when He is working on us it is more than He had when He created the world.
II. God's Work in Your Life is Satisfying [v. 11-13]
At the West Branch God did a miracle for buildings so God could do a bigger miracle in changed lives.
III. You Waste God's Blessings when you Fail to Trust Him Next Time [v. 13, Mk. 6:45-52, 8:1-9, 14-21]
"How strangely senseless and stupid you are." - Matthew Henry
