2021.05.02 約翰福音6:16-21 「生命的粮之二:耶穌是主」


经文:【约翰福音第六章16-21节】

16. 到了晚上,他的门徒下海边去,

17. 上了船,要过海往迦百农去。天已经黑了,耶稣还没有来到他们那里。

18. 忽然狂风大作,海就翻腾起来。

19. 门徒摇橹,约行了十里多路,看见耶稣在海面上走,渐渐近了船,他们就害怕。

20. 耶稣对他们说:是我,不要怕!

21. 门徒就喜欢接他上船,船立时到了他们所要去的地方。


导言:

《约翰福音》中的主题是耶稣基督启示自己是谁?他是谁?在《约翰福音》中,耶稣启示自己是:

我是生命的粮(6:35);

我是世界的光(8:12);

我是羊的门(10:17);

我是好牧人(10:11,14);

我是复活,我是生命(11:25);

我是唯一的道路、真理、生命(14:6);

我是葡萄树(15:1,5);

我是王(18:37);

• 伴随耶稣基督对自己身份的启示的是神迹。因此, 所有这些的神迹都是指向耶稣基督的神性。因为神迹是神性的彰显。

• 在这段的经文中,耶稣基督的神性是通过耶稣基督对自然界的掌管彰显出来的。因为世界是他创造的,世界是他所掌管的,世界在他的手中。

• 但是,人常常是愚拙的。因为罪性的本身导致人很自然地看重神迹,却常常忽略了神性!

• 所有经历神迹的人都有一个责任就是见证神,而不是用神迹来吹捧自己。


重点:

一、耶稣是掌管自然界的主

行在水面乃是一件超乎自然常理的事。然而,当门徒们在海中惊慌失措的时候,耶稣基督以行在水面的方式出现在他们面前。


1. 耶稣想把门徒的注意力转向自己

2. 耶稣想让门徒们知道, 他是超越人经历的困难


二、耶稣是掌管人生命的主宰

耶稣基督让自己的门徒学到三个重要的功课:

1. 生命里的每个状况都是神的安排。 [可6:·45—52]

2. 主必然会在最合适的时候,拯救我们。

3. 困难中, 耶稣基督是同在的主。我们不要惧怕,倒要欢喜快乐。


三、耶稣是赐给人信心的主

• 耶稣基督在门徒面前彰显自己的能力。为什么?他要让他们更加认识自己,让我们把自己的信心建立在对自己的正确认识上!

• 信心就是知道神是谁?信心就是听见神说:"不要怕,是我! ”

• 神的儿女经历神的恩典,建立真正的信心。


结语:

1. 约六1-15节,耶稣基督通过五饼二鱼启示自己是生命的粮。但同时,耶稣基督也是生命的 主,宇宙的主宰。 (西1:15-17)

2. 约六16-21节,耶稣基督行在水面上,平息风浪,安慰门徒,他是主动的。他是大有权柄和能力的。神常常用温柔的爱,邀请你,鼓励你接近他。同时,神也彰显自己的强大,让你可以有信心依靠他!

3. 若是我们真的明白,耶稣神性的奇妙。那么我们就会效法他:耶稣基督如此, 一个真正的信徒也是如此。

4. 生命中每件事都是神给我们的训练,看看你是否真的相信神,看看你信的是自己的钱包,还是神!

5. 主啊,我感谢你给我的挑战!我知道你给我的挑战乃是要让我们看见你,经历你,并且更加认识和信靠你!因为,你不是要让我们认识环境,乃是要让我认识你!并且让我知道,你与我们同在,你是超越一切环境的主!



 

Scripture: [John 6:16-21]

16 When evening came, his disciples went down to the lake, 17 where they got into a boat and set off across the lake for Capernaum. By now it was dark, and Jesus had not yet joined them. 18 A strong wind was blowing and the waters grew rough. 19 When they had rowed about three or four miles,[a] they saw Jesus approaching the boat, walking on the water;(B) and they were frightened. 20 But he said to them, “It is I; don’t be afraid.”(C) 21 Then they were willing to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat reached the shore where they were heading.


Preface:

The theme in the "Gospel of John" is that Jesus Christ revealed himself to be? Who is he? In the "Gospel of John", Jesus revealed himself to be:

  • I am the bread of life (6:35);

  • I am the light of the world (8:12);

  • I am the gate for the sheep (10:17);

  • I am the good shepherd (10:11, 14);

  • I am the resurrection and the life (11:25);

  • I am the way and the truth and the life (14:6);

  • I am the vine (15:1, 5);

  • I am the king (18:37);


  • There are miracles that accompany Jesus Christ's revelation of his identity. Therefore, all these miracles point to the deity of Jesus Christ. Because miracles are manifestations of divinity.

  • In this passage, the deity of Jesus Christ is revealed through Jesus Christ's control of the natural world. Because he created the world, he controls the world, and the world is in his hands.

  • However, people are often foolish. Because of the sinful nature, people naturally value miracles, but often ignore the divine nature!

  • All people who experience miracles have a responsibility to witness God, not to praise themselves with miracles.


Focus Points:

A. Jesus is the Lord in charge of the natural world.

Walking on the water is a thing beyond natural sense. However, when the disciples panicked in the sea, Jesus Christ appeared before them by walking on the water.

  1. Jesus wanted to turn his disciples' attention to himself

  2. Jesus wants his disciples to know that he is beyond the difficulties that people experience

B. Jesus is the Lord in charge of human life

Jesus Christ taught his disciples three important lessons:

  1. Every situation in life is arranged by God. (Mark 6:·45—52)

  2. The Lord will definitely save us at the most suitable time.

  3. In difficulties, Jesus Christ is the Lord. Let us not be afraid, but rejoice.

C. Jesus is the Lord who gives people faith:

  • Jesus Christ demonstrated his power before his disciples. Why? He wants them to know themselves better, and let us build our confidence on a correct understanding of ourselves!

  • Faith is to know who God is? Faith is to hear God say: "Don't be afraid, it's me!"

  • God's children experience God's grace and build true faith.

Conclusion:

  1. In John 6 verses 1-15, Jesus Christ revealed that he is the bread of life through five loaves and two fish. But at the same time, Jesus Christ is also the Lord of life and the Lord of the universe. (Col. 1:15-17)

  2. In John 6:16-21, Jesus Christ walked on the water to calm the storm and comfort the disciples. He was proactive. He is authoritative and powerful. God often uses tender love to invite you and encourage you to approach him. At the same time, God also shows his own strength, so that you can rely on him with confidence.

  3. If we really understand the wonder of the divinity of Jesus,then we will imitate him: Jesus Christ is like this, and so is a true believer.

  4. Everything in life is training given to us by God. See if you really believe in God, and see if you believe in your wallet or God!

  5. Lord, I thank you for the challenge you gave me! I know that the challenge you give me is to let us see you, experience you, and know you and trust you more! Because you don’t want us to know the environment, but to know you! And let me know that you are with us, you are the master who transcends all circumstances!
