Christian: 'Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you' - John 6:53

John 6:53 'Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you'

The Bible sanctifies and moulds the mind into the image of Christ. You cannot expect to grow in grace if you do not read the Scriptures. If you are not familiar with the word, you cannot expect to become like Him that spoke it.

Oh, be much with the holy word of God, and you will be holy. Be much with the silly novels of the day, and the foolish trifles of the hour, and you will degenerate into vapid wasters of your time.

But be much with the solid teachings of God's word, and you will become solid and substantial men and women: drink them in, and feed upon them, and they shall produce in you a Christ-likeness, at which the world shall stand astonished. - Spurgeon

Note: With the thought of feeding on the Word Of God, despite the certain objections of more than a few, the absolute truth is that the King James Version (KJV) is the only Bible that can produce the effects described above by Spurgeon. Every other version, without exception, are like the GMO foods passed off on people today - i.e. the vital essence having been destroyed it is not the real thing. Following that little analogy, the KJV would then be 'organic'. Recommend go organic if not already - see: KJV only - for a reason

John 6:53 would be about faith in Christ. Feeding on his body will never make us hungry. His body he has given for the world as he said in earlier verses. The life he is talking about is eternal life. The verse is about salvation. Isn't it?
