Jesus Christ said that He is The Way, The Truth, and The Life! (John 14:6)
This is a pretty popular quote among believers and non-believers a like.
Today, while walking, I was given a thought about this and another thought relating it to what Jesus also said in the Gospel According to John:
"Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you" (John 6:53)
(What is interesting is that once I got home and the next time I got on the computer on the Catholic Answers Forum the first post I read was a question asking people what they thought John 6:53 meant. Divine Providence!)
So, Jesus told us that He is THE LIFE!
And here He also tells us that if we consume His flesh we will have LIFE in us.
Makes perfect sense to me!
