Too often, we pass over those “hard sayings” of Scripture, and miss the beauty of Christ and the gospel revealed therein. This is certainly one of those passages. We are sometimes intimidated by the language, “unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you” (John 6:53). But this text ought not intimidate us. It is filled with a beautiful depiction of Christ, and His finished work on our behalf. This text also grounds our assurance of possessing eternal life on the solid rock of Christ.
