20211.08.08 馬可福音6:45-52「吃穿住行」


经文 :【马可福音6章45-52节】

45 耶稣随即催门徒上船,先渡到那边伯赛大去,等他叫众人散开。

46 他既辞别了他们,就往山上去祷告。

47 到了晚上,船在海中,耶稣独自在岸上;

48 看见门徒因风不顺,摇橹甚苦。夜里约有四更天,就在海面上走,往他们那里去,意思要走过他们去。

49 但门徒看见他在海面上走,以为是鬼怪,就喊叫起来;

50 因为他们都看见了他,且甚惊慌。耶稣连忙对他们说:你们放心!是我,不要怕!

51 于是到他们那里,上了船,风就住了;他们心里十分惊奇。

52 这是因为他们不明白那分饼的事,心里还是愚顽。


引言

  • 民以食为天,天上来的耶稣却引用圣经说:人活着,不是单靠食物,乃是靠神口里所出的一切话。

  • 上文提到耶稣看见一大群人,就怜悯他们,因为他们好像羊没有牧人一样,就开始教导他们许多事。

  • 这是牧人的心肠,喂养羊群,先吃灵粮。

  • 使徒们尚没有牧者心肠;众人找耶稣,以前是因见了神迹,五饼二鱼之后乃是因吃饼得饱。

  • 门徒需要继续训练,耶稣随即催门徒上船,叫众人散开。

  • 众人没留下联系方式,耶稣要给天父打电话:往山上去祷告。

重点:

一、耶稣的食物,就是遵行差他来者的旨意,作成他的工(门训)[45-47节]

1. 独自亲近神,为要照神的旨意行

清晨:[可1:35] 次日早晨,天未亮的时候,耶稣起来,到旷野地方去,在那里祷告。

重大事情:[路6:12-13] 那时耶稣出去上山祷告。整夜祷告神。到了天亮,叫他的门徒来。就从他们中间挑选十二个人,称他们为使徒。


2. 孤独只有神,帮助我们学习信靠神

[约16:32b] 留下我独自一人。其实我不是独自一人,因为有父与我同在。

[提后 4:16b-17a] 竟都离弃我;但愿这罪不归与他们。惟有主站在我旁边,加给我力量。

[希伯来书 5:8] 他虽然为儿子,还是因所受的苦难学了顺从。


二、基督徒一生犹如海面行走,难免劳苦、惊慌、害怕 [48-50节]

[太14:28-33] 彼得在水面上走,只因见风甚大,就害怕。将要沉下去,便喊着说:“主阿,救我。”

[希伯来书 12:2a] 专一注视耶稣,就是我们信心的创始者和完成者。

[约翰一书 5:5] 胜过世界的是谁呢?不就是那信耶稣是神的儿子的吗?


三、如何才能不再愚顽 [51-52节]

1. 认识耶稣到底是谁,连风和海也听从他了?

2. 千年顽疾

[耶 4:22a] 耶和华说,我的百性愚顽,不认识我。

[可8:17] 耶稣看出来,就说:“你们为什么因为没有饼就议论呢?你们还不省悟,还不明白吗?你们的心还是愚顽吗?”

3. 万代救恩

[约 6:56] 吃我肉喝我血的人、常在我里面、我也常在他里面。

[歌罗西书3:10] 穿上了新人.这新人在知识上渐渐更新、正如造他主的形像。

[约翰一书4:15] 凡认耶稣为神儿子的,神就住在他里面,他也住在神里面。

[加拉太书5:16b] 你们当顺着圣灵而行,就不放纵肉体的情欲了。 (按真理不凭感觉)

[约翰三书 1:4] 我听见我的儿女们按真理而行,我的喜乐就没有比这个大的。


结语:

  • “那分饼的事”、耶稣在海面上走、平静风浪,表明耶稣是基督,是神的儿子,我们信了他,就可以因他的名得生命。

  • 新生命,新生活,吃穿住行都改变。

讨论分享:

1. 耶稣为何要独自往山上去祷告?

2. 耶稣上了船,风就住了;为什么门徒心里十分惊奇?

3. 您明白那分饼的事吗? [52节]


 

Scripture: Mark 6:45-52

45 Immediately Jesus made his disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to Bethsaida, while he dismissed the crowd. 46 After leaving them, he went up on a mountainside to pray. 47 Later that night, the boat was in the middle of the lake, and he was alone on land. 48 He saw the disciples straining at the oars, because the wind was against them. Shortly before dawn he went out to them, walking on the lake. He was about to pass by them, 49 but when they saw him walking on the lake, they thought he was a ghost. They cried out, 50 because they all saw him and were terrified. Immediately he spoke to them and said, “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” 51 Then he climbed into the boat with them, and the wind died down. They were completely amazed, 52 for they had not understood about the loaves; their hearts were hardened.


Introduction:

  • Food is like God to people. (idiom); People view food as the primary need. However, Jesus said according to the Bible, “Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”

  • As mentioned in the scripture, when Jesus saw a large group of people, he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd, so Jesus began to teach them many things.

  • This is the heart of a shepherd, feed the sheep; eat spiritual food first.

  • The apostles did not have the heart of a shepherd; people looked for Jesus because they saw a miracle. After five loaves and two fish miracle, they were full because of the loaves of bread.

  • The disciples need to continue training. Jesus immediately urged the disciples to get on the boat and dispersed the crowd.

  • No contact information was left by the multitudes. Jesus wanted to call on the Heavenly Father: He goes up to the mountain and prays.

Focus Points:

A. The food of Jesus is to do the will of the one who sent him and to accomplish his work (discipleship training) (v45-47)


1. Get close to God alone in order to do God’s will.

· Early morning: Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.” (Mark 1:35)

· Important things: “12 One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God. 13 When morning came, he called his disciples to him and chose twelve of them, whom he also designated apostles:” (Luke 6:12-13)


2. Alone, but with God . Help us learn to trust God

· “You will leave me all alone. Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me.” (John 16:32b)

· 16 …. but everyone deserted me. May it not be held against them. 17But the Lord stood at my side and gave me strength,...”(2 Timothy 4:16b-17a])

· Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered” (Hebrews 5:8)


B. Christian's life is as walking on the sea, it is inevitable that we labor, panic, and fear (v48-50)

  • Peter was walking on the water, but when he saw the wind was strong, he was afraid. About to sink, he shouted, "Lord, save me." (Matthew 14:28-33)

  • fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.” ( Hebrews 12:2a)

  • “Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.” (1 John 5:5)


C. How to stop being foolish (v51-52)

1. Know who Jesus is, even wind and sea obeyed him.

2. Chronic Problem

  • "My people are fools; they do not know me.” (Jeramiah 4:22a)

  • " Aware of their discussion, Jesus asked them: ‘Why are you talking about having no bread? Do you still not see or understand? Are your hearts hardened?? " (Mark 8:17)

3. Salvation for Generations

  • “Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them. “ (John 6:56)

  • “and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.” (Colossians 3:10)

  • If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God.” (1 John 4:15)

  • So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.” (According to truth, not by feeling) (Galatians 5:16b)

  • “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.” (3 John 1:4)

Conclusion:

  • The “dividing of the bread”, Jesus walked on the sea and calmed the wind and waves, showing that Jesus is the Christ and the Son of God. If we believe in him, we can have life in his name.

  • New life, new living, food, clothing, housing and transportation have all transformed.

Discussion and Sharing:

  1. Why did Jesus go to the mountain alone to pray?

  2. When Jesus got on the boat, the wind stopped; why did the disciples feel so surprised?

  3. Do you understand the dividing of loafs of bread (v52)
