An Appointment with Christ: Multiplication of the loaves and fishes (Mark 6:30) Part 2
Dr. Roberto Miranda
Last time we talked about the disciples who came to Jesus after their time of Christian service on the outskirts of the city and when they returned from their ministry trip they told Jesus everything they had done and what they had taught. This is recounted by Mark as a kind of preamble for what will later be this wonderful miracle that Christ does of multiplying the loaves and fish.
But even in these initial words we already find some very powerful and very deep teachings. Last time we spoke about life lived in total dependence on God, about the importance of all the things that we undertake, we undertake in the name of Jesus Christ, trusting in Him, the life attached to God, the life that derives its strength and its effectiveness from an intimate relationship with Christ Jesus and we said that this intimacy is only obtained through a life of prayer, reading the word of God, communion with other believers who infect us with their faith and their love for the Lord. And in this way, with a life of faith in Christ, in the Spirit, we can be powerful people and used by God.
