Summary: It’s all about our sins and forgiveness through Jesus our Lord. Its spiritual….it’s all about our sprit…not our flesh
The Flesh Profits Nothing
John 6:54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.
This is one of the greatest statements in the Bible….Jesus is not saying they should kill Him and eat Him like an animal. We are to receive Him just as digesting bread. We are to believe on Him and receive the Holy Spirit that gives us life eternal. It’s not complicated, its repentance of sins, belief and receive.
We should look upon the blood of Jesus as the spotless Lamb of God that was slain for a final sacrifice for the sins of the world. There is no other way to look at it. It’s all about our sins and forgiveness through Jesus our Lord. Its spiritual….it’s all about our sprit…not our flesh…look at what Jesus says next.
John 6:59 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?61 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
It is the Spirit that makes us alive; the flesh profits nothing. This old body is going in the ground but, our spirit, our soul our very being will live forever either in Heaven or in Hell. Jesus said The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
Remember what John said back in chapter 1….the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.
It was the Spirit of God in our Lord Jesus. God became flesh and brought the Word of the good news of the gospel. He brought life through His human blood shed on the cross. He brought a plan to the human race to mend the relationship with Him once again.
He spoke this world into existents…..He could easily speak it out of existents. The same God who spoke and everything was created ….stepped out of eternity into the time that He created and became flesh like me and you. The only reason He did was to pay for our sins….because for God so loved the world. There is no other way to get salvation. There is no other way to inherit eternal life. There is no other god that promises anything that still lives. Our God lives! Our God lives! He lives in me, how about you?
