Sunday series: 07/04/2010 (#93)

Where: Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church at 10am

Bible reading:

“1 In those days the multitude being very great, and having nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples unto him, and saith unto them, 2 I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now been with me three days, and have nothing to eat: 3 And if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they will faint by the way: for divers of them came from far. 4 And his disciples answered him, From whence can a man satisfy these men with bread here in the wilderness? 5 And he asked them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven. 6 And he commanded the people to sit down on the ground: and he took the seven loaves, and gave thanks, and brake, and gave to his disciples to set before them; and they did set them before the people. 7 And they had a few small fishes: and he blessed, and commanded to set them also before them. 8 So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets. 9 And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them away. 10 And straightway he entered into a ship with his disciples, and came into the parts of Dalmanutha. 11 And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him. 12 And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation. 13 And he left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the other side. 14 Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them more than one loaf. 15 And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod. 16 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have no bread. 17 And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened? 18 Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember? 19 When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve. 20 And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven. 21 And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand? (Mark 8:1-21 KJV)

Comments then:

  1. Holy Communion
  2. entered the Sanctuary [during Hymn 262: God of the Ages, Who Almighty Hand]
  3. the multiplication of the bread and the fish to feed many of these 4000 who went to see him.
  4. “Through your word, find freedom.”

Comments now:

  1. The miracle of the bread and the fish is still one of my favorites.
  2. At times, how could we not wish this could happen again and again to stop world hunger?
  3. I must believe that this miracle was true because many die of hunger each miserable day.

    Fue cierto, y podemos hacerlo nosotros todos los días y cada vez que nos sirvamos algún alimento, se dice: Gracias padre por concederme estos alimentos, bendice las manos que los produjeron, las manos que los prepararon y multiplicalo en las mesas de los mas necesitados. Padre da pan al que tiene hambre y hambre de Ti,al que tiene pan. Amen. Que así, sea, que así, es, que Así es. No necesariamente tiene que ser igual, se puede decir lo que uno quiera, y eso se cumplirá, porque todo lo que pensamos, hacemos o decimos queda grabado en el infinito.

    Otra forma de hacerlo es con el servicio, dicen que se debe de comenzar con el servicio porque el que no sirve para servir, no sirve para vivir. El servicio hay que hacerlo e involucrar a la familia, uno se va humanizando poco a poco, lo que al comienzo se hace por obligación, después se lo hace con amor. Cualquier tipo de servicio, mingas, reparto de juguete, reparto de comida, etc. siempre la mas necesitado, sin esperar nada a cambio, ni agradecimiento, ni reconocimiento, ni por figurar, nada, porque uno sufre decepción, sufre disilusion, cuando se espera algo a cambio, no es servicio. No hay que compartir lo que nos sobra, sino que hay que compartir lo poco que tenemos. Puede comenzar por llevar un desayuno simple, sencillo, los domingos y dárselo al mas necesitado. Muchas veces noes comida lo que les hace falta, es un saludo, es escucharlos, es compañía.
