Tin Vào Đấng Ban Sự Sống

CHIA SẺ TIN MỪNG CHÚA NHẬT XVIII.NĂM B

 

                      TIN VÀO ĐẤNG BAN SỰ SỐNG..

 

Thời Mô-sê, trong sa mạc, dân Do-thái cằn nhằn với Mô-sê và A-a-ron rằng sao để họ chết đói.  Vì thế Chúa cho mưa bánh từ trời để họ tin và nghe theo giáo huấn của Ngài ( Xh 16:2-4).

 

Thời Chúa Giê-su, trong nơi hoang vắng, Ngài cũng ban bánh từ trời là chính Ngài để  người Do-thái tin và nghe theo giáo huấn của Ngài vì họ nói: “ Ngài ban cho chúng tôi dấu lạ gì để chúng tôi thấy và tin theo Ngài” (Ga 6:30).

 

Những người Do-thái này đã tin Chúa Giê-su như một tiên tri(Ga 6:14) chứ không như Đấng- Ban- Sự -Sống như Ngài cả quyết: “Ta là bánh sự sống”(Ga 6:35) hoặc tin Chúa như một ông vua đem lại lợi ích trần gian ngoài ý Chúa (Ga 6:15; 6:26).

 

Trái lại Chúa muốn người ta tin Ngài là chính sự sống như lời Ngài phán: “ Ta là bánh sự sống”(Ga 6:35); tin Ngài là bánh không hư nát nhưng tồn tại cho sự sống đời đời( Ga 6:27).

 

Nếu tin Ngài là sự sống thì người ta phải “tìm kiếm” Ngài như mục đích sống chứ không như phương tiện; tìm kiếm Ngài là ý nghĩa của dấu lạ chứ không chỉ tìm dấu lạ: “Các ngươi tìm Ta không vì “thấy” dấu lạ mà vì đã ăn bánh no nê”(Ga 6:26).

 

Và, nếu tin Ngài là sự sống thì người ta phải “đến với” Ngài mà ăn cũng như đến với Đấng Khôn Ngoan mà ăn lời Ngài để sống : “Hãy đến ăn bánh của Ta, uống rượu Ta chế “ (Cn 9:5); “ Hãy đến với Ta, những ai khao khát Ta để được ăn hoa trái của Ta”(Hc 24:18).

 

Theo Th.Phao-lô, tin và nghe lời dạy của Chúa là “ đừng sống theo sự phù phiếm do ý nghĩ. Đó chẳng phải là điều Chúa dạy. Hãy sống theo sự thật tức là cởi bỏ con người cũ mà mặc lấy con người mới trong sự công chính, thánh thiện” (Eph 4:17,20-24).

    OUR SUNDAY CELEBRATION

    Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time/B

    THE BREAD OF LIFE. The manna the Israelites discovered in the wilderness satisfied their hunger. More importantly, it was a sign that God was with them in their time of trial. Likewise, the multiplication of the loaves and fishes was not intended simply to satisfy the hunger of the crowds but to be a sign to them of the presence of God in Jesus. In the symbolic actions of the Eucharistic celebration we also recognise the presence of Christ, the Bread of Life, among us.

    Resp Psalm Ps 77:3-4,23-25, 54.R. v. 24

    R. The Lord gave them bread from heaven.
    1. The things we have heard and understood, / the things our fathers have told us, / we will tell to the next generation: / the glories of the Lord and his might. R.
    2. He commanded the clouds above / and opened the gates of heaven. / He rained down manna for their food, / and gave them bread from heaven. R.
    3. Mere men ate the bread of angels. He sent them abundance of food. / He brought them to his holy land, / to the mountain which his right hand had won. R.

    The World of the Gospel

    BECAUSE YOU ATE THE LOAVES AND WERE FILLED

    The crowd seeks Jesus. The people see in him the answer to their material needs and physical hunger. Impressed by the multiplication of the loaves and fish, they are motivated by the prospect of free food and enticed by the thought of getting something more from Jesus.

    Jesus can surely give more than bread. But Jesus exhorts them to work not for food that perishes but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give them. Beyond physical bread there is bread that brings eternal life. He himself is this bread from the Father, living bread that gives enternal life.

    This bread from heaven is now made visible in the sacrament of the Eucharist. As God fed his people with manna during their exodus, God is offering us the bread of life, Jesus assures us, ‘Whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever beieves in me will never thirst (Jn 6:35).

    Our risen Lord gives us all the bread we need. He gives us all that ultimately satisfies us and, as disciples of his, we are to give others all the bread they need: we are to give them all that ultimately satisfies them – not only perishable food but love and hope mediated by our faithful lives and words, food that endures to eternal lfe. This is carrying out God’s work.

    MORNING PRAYER

    Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
    Worship the Lord with gladness;
    Come before Him with joyful songs.
    Know that the Lord is God.
    It is he who made us, and we are his;
    We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
    Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise;
    Give thanks to Him and praise his name.
    For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
    His faithfulness continues through all generations.

    Psalm 100 ( NIV )

    MORNING PRAYER

    CHILDREN’S SUSCIPE (Latin for “take up – accept – receive”)

    ( A prayer of appreciation paraphrased from Catherine Mc Auley suscipe)

    My God,
    I will belong to You forever.
    Teach me to trust in You because I
    know You love me and will always be near me.
    Help me always to obey You even when it is hard.
    Take from my heart all fear.
    Help me never to be sad, but always joyful, knowing that You are my God and that someday will be with You in Heaven.

    Reflection

    THE SAME SUNSHINE THAT MELTS THE BUTTER HARDENS THE CLAY

    When you constantly deal with people’s problems, it will make you either callous or compassionate. In spite of his disappointment in people, Jesus never lost His sense of compassion.

    Love isn’t a virus that you catch, it’s a virtue you’re supposed to practice every day. And there’s a divine dimension to his kind of love.

    “The love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us” (Ro 5:5 NKJV).

    You can’t reach into the well of your own emotions to find such love; you can only take the love of God that’s been poured into your heart and share it with others. And if you are to serve God sucessfully, you must have regular transfusions of His love.

    MORNING PRAYER

    One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek:
    That I may dwell in the house of the Lord
    all the days of my life,
    to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord
    and to seek him in his temple.
    I am still confident of this:
    I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

    Psalm 27:4, 13 (NIV)

    MORNING PRAYER

    Teach me, O Father, How to ask you each moment,silently,for your help.
    If I fail, teach me at once to ask you to forgive me.
    If I am disquieted,enable me, by your grace, quicky to turn to you.
    May nothing this day come between me and you…

    MORNING PRAYER

    Help me, Lord, to remember
    That religion is not to be confined
    To the church or closet,
    Nor exercised only in prayer or meditation,
    But that everywhere I am in your presence.
    So may my word and action have a moral content.

    Susanna Wesley
