Christ Magnified

The LORD your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your midst, from your brethren. Him you shall hear… – Deuteronomy 18:15

Then those men, when they had seen the sign that Jesus did, said, “This is truly the Prophet who is to come into the world.” – John 6:14

The miracle of the loaves carried them back to the wilderness, and to the miracle of the manna; they remembered that Moses had said, “The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me.” For this Deliverer they longed, and as the bread increased so grew their wonder, until in the swelling cakes they saw the finger of God, and said, “This is of a truth that Prophet that should come into the world.” That little lad became, by his loaves and fishes, the revealer of Christ to all the multitude; and who can tell, if you give your loaves to Christ, whether thousands may not recognize Him as the Savior because of it? Christ is still known in the breaking of bread. But the people went further with reference to Christ, after they had been fed by the loaves and fishes: they concluded that He was a prophet, and they began whispering among themselves, “Let us make Him a king.” Now, in a better sense than the text implies, I would to God that you and I, though humbly and feebly, might serve Christ till people said, “Christ is a Prophet. Let us make Him a King.” Oh, that He had a throne in the hearts of many whom He shall feed at this time with the bread of heaven! Brethren, I know that you wish to glorify Christ. Here is the way. Bring your loaves and fishes to Christ, that He may use them in His divine commissariat, and then He shall be magnified in the eyes of all the people. ~ C.H. Spurgeon
