"Purity of Commitment"
“He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him … he who eats this bread will live forever.” The Samaritan woman testified to her neighbors after having an encounter with Jesus and they believed in Him. But they went further and came to Him, asked Him to stay with them and received Him. They themselves then had a direct, personal encounter with the Messiah and found life. That’s what’s made available to us at the table of the Lord. But we have to come to Him and receive Him, that He may abide in us and we in Him.
