‘Eat My Flesh Drink My Blood?’😳

‘Eat My Flesh Drink My Blood?’😳

John‬ ‭6:51‬ ‭NKJV‬‬ “I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.””

John 6:53‭-‬66 HCSB “So Jesus said to them, “I assure you: Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you do not have life in yourselves. Anyone who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day, because My flesh is real food and My blood is real drink. The one who eats My flesh and drinks My blood lives in Me, and I in him. Just as the living Father sent Me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on Me will live because of Me. This is the bread that came down from heaven; it is not like the manna your fathers ate — and they died. THE ONE WHO EATS THIS BREAD WILL LIVE FOREVER.” He said these things while teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum. Therefore, when many of His disciples heard this, they said, “This teaching is hard! Who can accept it?” Jesus, knowing in Himself that His disciples were complaining about this, asked them, “Does this offend you? Then what if you were to observe the Son of Man ascending to where He was before? The Spirit is the One who gives life. The flesh doesn’t help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life. But there are some among you who don’t believe.” (For Jesus knew from the beginning those who would not believe and the one who would betray Him.) He said, “This is why I told you that no one can come to Me unless it is granted to him by the Father.” From that moment many of His disciples turned back and no longer accompanied Him.”

Why would Jesus say this knowing that people would stop following Him? Because Jesus wasn’t interested in followers. He was (and still is) interested in true worshippers:

John 4:23-24 KJV “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. [24] God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”

False worshippers have a tendency to get offended and find fault if they don’t immediately understand something. They wait for you to say or do anything so they can say, “Aha! We got you now! See, he/she is phony! We told you!” True worshippers are more patient, they peer into things and don’t usually make snap judgments. They are the ones that later learned and understood what Jesus meant when He said, ‘Eat my flesh and drink my blood.’

If you are a true worshipper don’t be surprised when people treat you the same way they treated Jesus. (Matthew 10:24-25) Some will quickly find fault with whatever you do or say. Many of these will be false believers. Embrace this treatment as a good soldier of Christ.😊 (2 Timothy 2:3) What an honor and a privilege it is to share in the sufferings of Jesus!😊

2 Timothy 2:12 KJV “If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:
