PARTAKING OF THE FLESH AND BLOOD OF JESUS

After conversion, we are given a new lease of life. By partaking of the body and blood of Christ, this life grows unto eternity. However, the extension from temporal to eternal is only made possible by the working of the Spirit.

Critically, we must respond to the Spirit’s work by keeping ourselves holy in the Lord while waiting for His second coming. Doing this extends our life after physical death. Remaining in the Lord with the help of His Spirit, we will be raised on the last day to receive eternal life (Jn 6:53–57, 61–63). This is why Jesus says, whoever eats His flesh and drinks His blood shall have eternal life (Jn 6:54).

Partaking of the Holy Communion also enables us to abide in the Lord—“He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me and I in Him” (Jn 6:56). There are three parts to this relationship.

The Bible tells us that Jesus has given us His life. In reality, this act of giving is achieved by the Spirit when we partake of His flesh and blood. The inseparable relationship that we have with Christ is reflected in the life we now live; our life is the very life of Christ and is Christ Himself. By partaking of the Holy Communion, we feed on Jesus. We live His life because He is alive in us (Jn 6:57–58). Through the incessant work of the Spirit in us, our lives are constantly energized and sustained by keeping the word in our hearts.

Partaking of the Holy Communion is, on our part, a conscious choice to abide in Him. Remaining in Him requires us to keep the truth, which then enhances the abiding presence of the Spirit in our life (Jn 15:7). Essentially, practicing the word in all conceivable aspects of life is to imitate the life that Christ lived while He was in this world.
