Jesus is teaching in the synagogue at Capernaum and insists that eternal life comes by eating His flesh and drinking His blood. To those who rejected this teaching it was a repugnant act of cannibalism. To those who accepted what Jesus was saying, it was a mystery that carried the promise of all they yearned for; eternal life with God.
Lord Jesus, thank you for Your insistence and Your patience; Your insistence on teaching the necessity of eating Your body and blood and Your patience in waiting for me to come eat, come drink.
Little Flower, please pray for me.
