Jesus wants to know if Philip recognizes himself in the very people he is trying to get away from, in those who are chasing after Jesus in their need.
'Philip do you recognize these people who are chasing us are not that much different than you?'
Do we recognize who Jesus is and what he is capable of?
How does change take place?
It begins when we recognize that we have more in common with those in need than we realize.
In other words, we need Jesus just as much as they do. Our needs might be different. But, we need him just as much. Jesus can do more than feed 5,000 people. He desires and is able to do greater things than this. We have to recognize and believe who he is.
