‘Eating and drinking’ Jesus

Share this Article

The message of Jesus, “He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood, dwells in me, and I in him,” may have initially startled some. However, its true essence lies in the profound act of embracing his sacrificial death and triumphant resurrection. It calls upon us to dedicate ourselves to living in accordance with his teachings, relying on his guidance for our actions, and placing our trust in the empowering presence of the Holy Spirit.

This profound statement implies that by partaking in the essence of Jesus, symbolized through the act of consuming his flesh and blood, we establish a deep spiritual connection with him. To truly understand and apply this message, we are called to wholeheartedly believe in his ultimate sacrifice for humanity and the transformative power of his resurrection. It encourages us to center our lives around the teachings of Jesus, allowing them to shape our thoughts, words, and actions.

By dwelling in Jesus and allowing him to dwell in us, we invite a profound union with him. This union implies a personal and intimate relationship, where we align our will with his and surrender to his divine purpose. It is through this partnership that we find the strength and guidance to navigate life’s challenges and obstacles.

Furthermore, this message emphasizes the vital role of the Holy Spirit in our journey of faith. The Holy Spirit, bestowed upon believers by Jesus, provides us with the necessary power, wisdom, and discernment to walk in obedience to his teachings. By trusting in the Holy Spirit, we open ourselves to divine transformation and allow the Spirit’s presence to work through us, enabling us to live in alignment with God’s will.

In essence, Jesus’ message, while initially shocking, urges us to embrace his death and resurrection as the core of our faith. It encourages us to commit ourselves to a life dedicated to following his teachings, relying on his guidance, and trusting in the empowering presence of the Holy Spirit. Through this transformative journey, we can experience a profound union with Jesus, allowing his love and light to radiate through our lives.
