Nibble of Bread : John 6:56

August 4, 2012

Flesh and Blood.

John 6:56

Anyone who eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him.

This chapter was action packed, I had a difficult time picking one verse to share with all of you today. I encourage all of you to read this chapter today and follow-up with the daily bread if you want to expand a bit more. This verse is very well-known for being a difficult and tough to understand verse.

When we eat something it enters our lips, mouth, tongue, and goes through our whole throat system, passes a few sphincters into  the stomach. It then gets processed from the stomach, through our entire intestinal system (which is crazy long) then passes out of us. Drinking something has a very similar route but finishes differently. Basically everything we eat and drink passes through our main body systems in order to bring life to the rest of our body. If we rub food on our skin, or pour water on our toes the desired effect will not last. So what Jesus is trying to illustrate to us is that we must consume Him to our core. He must be so a part of our lives, not the parts that can easily be washed away. But to be involved in our lives to the point of affecting our livelihood. He must be so deeply consumed and rooted within us, that without Him our bodies will dry up and wither away, just like if you don’t eat or drink.
