Communion: Life

1 min read

And Jesus said,

I am the bread of life. Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. This is the bread that has come down from heaven, so that a person may eat from it and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats from this bread he will live forever. The bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.”
Then the Jews who were hostile to Jesus began to argue with one another, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” Jesus said to them, “I tell you the solemn truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in yourselves. The one who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. The one who eats my flesh and drinks my blood resides in me, and I in him. Just as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so the one who consumes me will live because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven; it is not like the bread your ancestors ate, but then later died. The one who eats this bread will live forever.” – John 6:48-58 (NET)

And later, He broke bread, and said, “Take, eat, this is My body.” So now, we come together to take, and eat, and thereby have eternal life in Him. Let us pray.

A few verses later, we read:
After this many of his disciples quit following him and did not accompany him any longer. So Jesus said to the twelve, “You don’t want to go away too, do you?” Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and to know that you are the Holy One of God!” – John 6:66-69 (NET)

There. Is. No. Other. God. Let me say that again. There. Is. No. Other. God. ONLY our God has the words of eternal life. ONLY Jesus is the Holy One of God. ONLY He provides a way that we can be united to Him for eternity. We shall not go away either. There is no other to whom we can go.
