“Of Trees and Eucharist”

August 26, 2018

 

 

John 6: 53: “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 yourselves.”  There’s an old saying, “You can’t see the forest for the trees.”  It means that we focus so much on details, sometimes awesome or startling details, that we miss the big picture.  We must beware of approaching this powerful verse in such a manner. Yes, it boggles the natural mind, but this is about the Spirit; and Jesus’ spiritual message, based on His metaphoric introduction to this verse that started in v. 26, is this: He is our rock-bottom, core-level source, and there is no life without Him.
