In these passages is the account of Jesus feeding the 5000 on the mountain. He miraculously produced more than enough fish and bread for them.
The multitudes were following Jesus because of the signs that He was performing in healing the sick and crippled and casting out demons. These miraculous signs gave the people motivation to believe Jesus, and it drew them to listen to His teaching about the Kingdom of God.
We, too, have an initial motivation to draw us to hear the Word of God. That motivation is a healthy fear of God. The Bible says, “The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.” This wisdom leads us to believe in Jesus Christ, who is the living Word of God. We are then enabled to understand God’s Truths and are motivated to live our lives by those Truths.
