An Appointment with Christ: Multiplication of the loaves and fishes (Mark 6:30) Part 6
Dr. Roberto Miranda
SUMMARY: The passage from Mark, Chapter 6, culminates with the multiplication of the loaves and fish, emphasizing the importance of a compassionate church that meets the needs of the world. The church of Jesus Christ on earth should have a varied way of ministering, addressing not just spiritual issues, but also social issues such as feeding the hungry, helping the homeless, and intervening in the educational and academic affairs of the community. Christians must be doers of the word and not just hearers of it, doing works of mercy and being instruments of God's grace wherever they are. Every child of God, no matter how humble, has something of God's grace and can contribute to the Kingdom of God.
My dear brothers, I greet you in the mighty name of Christ Jesus. This is your friend and brother Roberto Miranda speaking and I have been sharing with you these last few weeks the passage from Mark, Chapter 6, and we have taken time analyzing this passage that concludes and culminates with the multiplication of the loaves and fish, because it has some tremendous and profound teachings like you, I believe, who will agree with me.
We see here that this crowd approaches Jesus in need of a word and the Lord dedicates time to teach them. At the end of the day a long teaching, the disciples say to the Lord Jesus Christ: "Lord, send them away so that they can go because night is getting closer and buy food, and we are going to continue with the rest that we had planned."
