The Sweetest Times That You’ll Have

Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood have eternal life; and I will raise them up on the last day.    John 6:54

The sweetest times that you’ll have with Jesus are when you are eating His flesh and drinking His blood; these are uplifting and filling-up spiritual moments.  Jesus is instructing you on how to take all of Him into your heart– through hearing the preaching of the Word, the service of Holy Communion, and constancy of the His Holy energizing Presence which fills you so fully with His Peace that you experience the complete contentment of Home in Him.

He is what completes you as a person.  Yes, He speaks in our Scripture today about the personal relationship you have with Him during the Holy Communion time together and added to that He is speaking about your focus on the core of salvation itself, which is His life given for you on the Cross as you come unto Him in spiritual gratitude and humility.  To abide in His flesh and blood is to be lifted up just as if you are gifted with eagle’s wings.

…the Lord shall renew their strength
they shall mount up with wings like eagles,
they shall run and not be weary,
they shall walk and not faint.    Isaiah 40:31
