不能拥有上帝我们的方式 - JN 6:41-51

福音 JN 6:41-51

犹太人对耶稣的嘀咕,因为他说,
“我是从天上降下来的面包,”
他们说,
“这不是耶稣,约瑟的儿子吗?
我们不认识他的父亲和母亲吗?
然后怎么说呢
“我从天而降”?“
耶稣回答说,
“停止在你们中间喃喃自语。
除非送我的父亲吸引他,否则没有人能来找我,
我会在最后一天抚养他。
它写在先知书中:
他们都应该由上帝教导。
每个倾听我父亲并从他那里学习的人都会来找我。
不是任何人见过父亲
除了来自上帝的人;
他见过父亲。
阿们,阿门,我告诉你,
谁相信有永生。
我是生命的面包。
你的祖先在沙漠中吃了吗哪,但他们死了;
这是从天上降下来的面包
这样人们可以吃它而不会死。
我是从天上降下来的活面包;
吃这种面包的人将永远活着;
我将给予的面包是我对世界生活的肉体。“

概述

Does it feel like we have read this exact story for the past few weeks? We keep coming back to Jesus being the “bread of life” for the world. We started out with Jesus feeding the crowd with the loaves and fish. Then the crowd followed him, because they wanted more from this guy who could create something from nothing. Remember – they wanted to crown him king which Jesus refused. Now, that they see Jesus is not what they envisioned the Messiah to be, they start to turn on him. Jesus clarifies his mission and claims His right as the one who came to save us through His crucifixion and the cross.

抱怨人群

Do you ever notice that people are different when they are in groups than they might be individually? Especially when discontent is rising. The crowd was not happy already because Jesus refused to become their king. Now, someone in the crowd popped up and brought up the fact that they knew Jesus as he grew up – that they knew his father and mother. It probably made this person feel powerful 0 knowing something that might make Jesus seem less important. And when a group of people starts grumbling and complaining in this way, it only grows.

你的定罪的勇气

It takes a good deal of bravery for someone to stand up to a crowd like this, from inside the crowd. Whenever I think of standing up against a crowd, I think of a story I read once of Alexander Hamilton, facing a mob in the dead of night, set on tar and feathering a man. The mob could have easily turned on Hamilton, but he stood firm in his convictions. Ultimately, he was able to delay the crowd from entering the building long enough for the man to escape.

Notice, we don’t hear of any actions by the disciples and anyone else stepping up to defend Jesus. Remember, many of these folks 治愈自己的奇迹。 最 at the feeding of the 5000 with 5 loaves and 2 fish. Others 有经验 when Jesus cast demons out of people. If anyone had stepped up, this story might have gone very differently.

所以耶稣听到人群不断增长的不满情绪,首先抱怨他们的抱怨和抱怨。

  • “停止嘀咕”
  • “除非送我的父亲吸引他,否则没有人能来找我”
  • “谁相信有永生”
  • “我是从天而降的活面包”

通过站在人群中并再次宣布他的信念和信息,耶稣扼杀了咕。声。

耶稣澄清了他的要求

Specifically, with the statements above, Jesus clarifies his claims to be the Messiah. He also speak of how His way will not be the way that 我们希望。 耶稣的方式不会被群众希望他采取行动所规定。 这将是一种表明父亲意志的方式。

我们不控制上帝

This is important. We don’t control God. God is eternally consistent. God is the great 我是. Too often, we want God to be a certain way. How many times do we say this is how 我相信 上帝应该是? 我们说的话就像。

  • 我相信 上帝是爱。
  • 我相信 上帝很好。
  • 我相信 上帝不会评判我们。
  • 我相信 上帝希望我们快乐。

我们想要一个汉堡王风格的神。 但我们不能像我们的汉堡包那样拥有他。 我们不能拿番茄酱并且有额外的蛋黄酱。

来到耶稣面前

上帝告诉我们的是:

“每个倾听我父亲并向他学习的人都来找我”

Pretty simple. Be humble and realize, we aren’t God. 在受启发的神的话语中 - 他的话 - 圣经和圣经 学习 从他的教导。 最终, 来到耶稣面前.

As Jesus shows in today’s Gospel, He is not at all about what we want Him to be. He is one with God the Father. He came in human form to save us from our sins. He says whoever eats of the living bread that came down from heaven, will live forever. He tells us 究竟 他是谁,他希望我们来到他面前。

通过来到耶稣,我们接受了他通过他在十字架上被钉十字架给我们的礼物。

That’s a great way to end this lesson. Our directions from Jesus are clear.

  • 听他的话 - 阅读圣经。
  • 通过研究他的话来学习他的教训。
  • 来到耶稣 - 就像我们一样。
  • 接受他的 礼品 救恩 - 在十字架上买的。
