 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.]

 52 Then the Jews argued among themselves, saying, "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?"

 53 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.

 54 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood, has eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

 55 For my flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.

 56 He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood, lives [continually] in me, and I in him.4

 57 As the living Father has sent me, and I live by the Father; so he who feeds on me, shall live by me.

 58  This is that Bread that came down from heaven; but not as your fathers ate manna, and are dead, for he who eats of this Bread shall live forever."5 [I am the Living Bread that comes down from heaven. John 6:51. From the Word of the Lord within: "I am the light of the world [every man]; whoever continues to feed on me shall have the light of life. I am the light of the world [every man]. He who follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the Light of Life. John 8:12" To feed is to follow, which is to listen/hear and obey what you are commanded to do.]

 59 He said these things in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.

5 How do you eat this Bread from heaven? You hear his words, which are spirit and life; you keep them, practicing them and obeying them. 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. The ritual of "communion" has been substituted for the real communion — a dialogue between you and Christ; a dialogue of words from Him that you retain — you eat — so that his word abides in you, and then controls you. More words, more control. The word, who is Christ, is being formed in your flesh.
(We are supposed to remember Christ every time we eat and drink, until he returns to appear in our heart, not grape juice and wafers in a sect's service.)
And remember, Christ told us to: Do not labor for food that perishes, but [instead labor] for the food that endures to everlasting life.

Whoever comes to me, and listens to my words, and does [practices, obeys] them, I will show you what he is like.
He is like a man who built a house, and dug deep, and laid the foundation securely built on a rock;
and when the flood arose, the torrent beat violently upon that house, but could not shake it because it was founded upon a rock.
But the person who hears and does not put my words into practice is like a man who built a house upon the earth without a foundation;
against which the torrent struck violently, and immediately it collapsed; and the ruin of that house was great.
Luke 6:47-48
