Bread of Life

What does he mean?
How can it be?
That he can be bread
for us?

Yet what I eat,
take into my body,
becomes a part of me,
maintains its functions,
builds cells
that keep me alive.

Taking Jesus
into my life,
he becomes a part of me.
My being,
my growth,
my strength.

And so
I take,
that we become one,
he is part of me
and I am part of him.

An in you alone Lord
do I have life.

Bread of Life, Hope of the World

John 6:51-58 (CEV)

51 I am that bread from heaven! Everyone who eats it will live forever. My flesh is the life-giving bread that I give to the people of this world.

52 They started arguing with each other and asked, “How can he give us his flesh to eat?”

53 Jesus answered:

I tell you for certain that you won’t live unless you eat the flesh and drink the blood of the Son of Man. 54 But if you do eat my flesh and drink my blood, you will have eternal life, and I will raise you to life on the last day.55 My flesh is the true food, and my blood is the true drink. 56 If you eat my flesh and drink my blood, you are one with me, and I am one with you.

57 The living Father sent me, and I have life because of him. Now everyone who eats my flesh will live because of me. 58 The bread that comes down from heaven isn’t like what your ancestors ate. They died, but whoever eats this bread will live forever.
