For my flesh is meat indeed and my blood is drink indeed
One day the Son of God came to the world. He stated that He is the bread come down out of heaven which gives life to the world. Many did not understand His meaning.
So He explained by saying,
“For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed” (John 6:55). In the sixth chapter of the Gospel according to John, the Lord repeated this same thought many times in different ways, such as, “Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, ye have not life in yourselves. He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day” (vv.
53-54). Indeed, this is rather marvelous. In all three dispensations, the Bible forbids the eating of blood; yet Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of God, declares that His blood may be drunk. Do you see God’s way
here? God forbids us to eat all kinds of blood, but he who drinks of the blood of the Lord is saved. There is only one kind of blood which we may drink. After drinking the blood of the Lord, we should not
drink any other blood.
