Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood will have real life in Me. Unless you eat my flesh and drink my blood you have a false life and no real life whatsoever. Myself as you life is ther spirit and life that makes you real and alive.
Seeing only what we want to see?
Alive Because we Eat Him
Should we have a hunger for life and an appetite for truth, we will eat Jesus and live because of Him. We will not content ourselves with defective doctrine just because it is ours. Neither will we indulge in semi-conscious rationalisations that confirm us as dead trees. We can either be a bonsai or a spreading oak, alive in the Spirit or kidding ourselves that we are because we are still tied to some element of the law. Richard Rohr writes, “God is patient, however. We don’t have to move out of our comfort zone every day. God gives us little plateaus — breathing spaces wherein we unfortunately get ensconced again. Everything is now wrapped around us, to affirm our present status and security and identity. It gives us a momentary sense of superiority. We hold on to this false security. We need failure and quiet time to recognize this pattern. We don’t want our cobweb of identity taken away. Without grace we will not enter into the void, and without grace the void will not be filled. All we can do is try to keep our hands cupped and open and ask God to teach us how to keep our hands cupped and open.” (1)
