Jesus said to His disciples, “You give them something to eat.” The disciples said, “There is a little boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish; but what are these for so many?” The Lord replied, “Bring them here to Me” (Matt. 14:16, 18; John 6:9). As long as they are barley loaves, as long as they are something of the resurrected Christ, that is good enough; that will meet the situation and there will be a surplus.
Brothers and sisters, if you will take my word, believe in the resurrected Christ, and apply Him, you will find that the remainder abiding in you is more than that with which you started. This is the barley. This is not just a teaching, but something for us to experience and apply every day in every situation. Apply the resurrected Christ, the unlimited, inexhaustible One. Tell Him, “Lord, I cannot meet the need, I cannot face the situation, but how I praise You, You can. I go ahead trusting wholly in You, counting wholly upon You.” (The All-Inclusive Christ, by Witness Lee, Chapter 5, Section 2)
