John 6:51-58

Did I Mention About the Bread?!

"I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats of this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh."

The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying, "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?"

So Jesus said to them, "Very truly, I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood have eternal life, and I will raise them up on the last day; for my flesh is true food and my blood is true drink. Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood abide in me, and I in them. Just as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever eats me will live because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven, not like that which your ancestors ate, and they died. But the one who eats this bread will live forever."

Who are We Having for Dinner?

When we eat the bread and drink the wine, are we getting something or are we giving something? Perhaps both. We normally think that we are getting something like grace, or forgiveness or affirmation of eternal life. However, it can also be said that we are giving something as well. We are claiming identity with Jesus - we are expressing our unity with his humanity (bread or flesh), his place in our heart (wine or blood/life force) and, therefore, belief in his teaching about the good news of God's love.
