51 I am the Living Bread that comes down from heaven. If any man eats of this Bread, he shall live forever; the Bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world." [The words that the Spirit speaks from Jesus come down from heaven and are life-giving, John 6:63, the bread of life, our daily bread, which we must labor every day to hear so that Jesus is formed in us with each word heard, until he is fully formed and we are raised from the dead to live in heaven; but we also still walk the earth with him in us and guiding our every word and deed.]
35 And Jesus said to them, "I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to me shall never hunger; and he who believes in me shall never thirst. [Jesus is the bread of life: the life of God, the Holy Spirit, the anointing. His words that you hear him speak to you impart the life of God to your heart. To acquire more of the Holy Spirit, more truth, more life, more of Jesus, you must sit in humble silence, wait on Him, listen, hear, and obey. It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life-giving. John 6:63. Come— not to sect services, not to prayer meetings, not to altar calls, and not Bible study; Jesus even said that studying the scriptures is not coming to Him. John 5:39-40. We must come directly to him, by sitting in humble silence as we wait on Him, listening for his voiced commands and teachings. To believe in Jesus is to believe what you hear him speak to you and then to obey it.]
|John 6:57 |
57 As the living Father has sent me, and I live by the Father; so he who feeds on me, shall live by me.
