|John 6:48-51 |
48 I am the Bread of Life.
49 Your forefathers ate manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
50 But this is the Bread that comes down from heaven, so that a man may eat of it, and not die.
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.]
