Hi
Moving on

     I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. This is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. And the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.?
John 6:48-‬51 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.6.48-51.ESV           


Here our Lord reminds us of how the Israelites were sustained in the wilderness by the manna from heaven but this only kept them alive for this life.
But now our Lord offers us the bread that gives us eternal life that bread is himself which he will offer on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins without which we cannot enter the kingdom of God.
So let us make sure we eat of this heavenly bread every day without fail his words are the bread of life so eat your fill every day.

Love and Peace
Dave

      The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying, ?How can this man give us his flesh to eat?? So Jesus said to them, ?Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.
John 6:52-‬54 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.6.52-54.ESV     


Difficult words to understands we know that Christ is the word of God
Is this what we should eat on a daily basis to build up our spiritual body then we shall drink his blood this is the holy spirit which gives us eternal life.
So let us continue to eat of his body which is the word of God lets eat of it every day knowing it is essential for our spiritual growth.

Love and Peace

Hi

     For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him.
John 6:55-‬56 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.6.55-56.ESV         


More difficult words is it everything he  gave us in the flesh that we must absorb into our selves everything from his birth to his crucifixion and resurrection his whole life here on earth everything he said and did.
 must we eat this on a daily basis absorbing it into ourselves so that we become part of him and he becomes part of us so let us eat of this heavenly food and drink the heavenly drink which leads to eternal life.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi

      As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever feeds on me, he also will live because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven, not like the bread the fathers ate, and died. Whoever feeds on this bread will live forever.? Jesus said these things in the synagogue, as he taught at Capernaum.
John 6:57-‬59 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.6.57-59.ESV         


It's the Father who gives life all life here on earth has been created by the Father through the son and it is the Father that has given life to his son in the flesh Jesus Christ.
Again Christ reminds us that we must feed on him he is the bread that came down from heaven we must eat of it every day while it is called today.
This is the bread that gives eternal life so let us eat our fill.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on

    When many of his disciples heard it, they said, ?This is a hard saying; who can listen to it?? But Jesus, knowing in himself that his disciples were grumbling about this, said to them, ?Do you take offense at this?
John 6:60-‬61 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.6.60-61.ESV         


I think there are many today who will have trouble with what our Lord had said about eating his flesh and drinking his blood not easy words to accept.
I think we need to look at them from a spiritual perspective because his body and blood is available to us today and we eat and drink it through the words he has given us so let us eat and drink of this heavenly banquet which will give us eternal life.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on

     Then what if you were to see the Son of Man ascending to where he was before? It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life. But there are some of you who do not believe.? (For Jesus knew from the beginning who those were who did not believe, and who it was who would betray him.)
John 6:62-‬64 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.6.62-64.ESV     


The decipels were having a hard time believing what our Lord had said so he gives them a little help telling them they would see him ascending back to heaven and then they would believe without a shadow of a doubt.
He also tells them the things he is telling them and us is spiritual and the physical is of no help at all we have to lift our thought into the spiritual realms.
Our Lord knew those who would not believe and who would betray him but let us not be of those that disbelieve but those who believe the words of our Lord which are spirit and its the spirit that gives life.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi

   And he said, ?This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted him by the Father.? After this many of his disciples turned back and no longer walked with him. So Jesus said to the twelve, ?Do you want to go away as well??
John 6:65-‬67 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.6.65-67.ESV       


These are difficult to understand I think it may have to do with this.

  For many are called, but few are chosen.?
Matthew 22:14 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.22.14.ESV         


All through scripture God has chosen Individuals to do his will and this applies to the Apostles they were chosen as disciples are followers who choose God through Christ.
Then of course God can only grant entrance into the body of Christ to those who have believed on the son of God.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on

     Simon Peter answered him, ?Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life, and we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God.?
John 6:68-‬69 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.6.68-69.ESV       


Here we have St Peter making a statement that we all need to make from the heart that our Lord Jesus is the holy one of God and it is through his words we can have eternal life.
So let us believe as Peter did that Jesus is the son of God who gives us access to the Father.

Love and Peace
Dave
