John 6:51-70 – August 22, 2021

Text: John 6:51-70
Two weeks ago, we began reading from John chapter 6 in which Jesus refers to Himself as the Bread of Life shortly after the miracle of feeding the 5000 people. Today, we continue this passage as Jesus expands on this idea, saying that the Bread is His flesh and those who will eat it will live forever for it is given to the world. When we hear these words, we might think of the sacrament of Holy Communion, which reminds us to look to the One who offers us spiritual food in the face of what comes against us.
