John 6 - NIV

41 At this the Jews there began to grumble about him because he said, “I am the bread that came down from heaven.”

42 They said, “Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How can he now say, ‘I came down from heaven’ ?”

43 “Stop grumbling among yourselves,” Jesus answered.

44 “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them, and I will raise them up at the last day.

45 It is written in the Prophets: ‘They will all be taught by God.’[a] Everyone who has heard the Father and learned from him comes to me.

46 No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God; only he has seen the Father.

47 Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life.

48 I am the bread of life.

49 Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, yet they died.

50 But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which anyone may eat and not die.

51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”

Why do we eat and drink his blood? Does it really empower us?
Shared by: Gordon McCulloch on Nov, 2016
Summary: Take eat and drink of my body. That is a command our Lord Jesus made. There is no getting away from it, but should we do this. Why is it relevant, and where does the power emanate? Do we need to know? Can we wriggle out of it, with consequences?

THE POWER TO MEET NEEDS
Shared by: Leonard Davis on Mar, 2016
Summary: People may genuinely want to help others and because God is left out, they set out to do it in their own strength. It doesn’t take long when dealing with material wealth and/or material resources that limitations are soon reached.

Soul Food
Shared by: Craig Condon on Jun, 2015
Summary: In order to live with Christ, we have to die to our worldly way of life and take up his life-a life of forgiveness, goodness, trust and service. If we are grounded in Christ’s unconditional love, we are free to lead like Jesus and love and serve others.

Consuming the Gospel
Shared by: Robert Sickler on Jun, 2015
Summary: According to surveys 78% of Americans are Christians but only 9% of Americans read the bible every day. Perhaps this is because one must go beyond reading the bible merely for the sake of reading the bible; we must truly consume the bible.
