Lentil Soup

What are you eating?

Making lentil soup for the first time this season, I’m reminded of the people I made it for last year.  One said angry, word curses to me.  I ate them and spoke them back out using my own words.

In John 6:51-58 Jesus says, “I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live forever: and the bread that I will give is My flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.  The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, ‘How can this man give His flesh to eat?’ Then Jesus said to them, Verily, verily, I say to you, Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink His blood, you have no life in you. Whoso eats My flesh, and drinks My blood, has eternal life: and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is meat indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.  He that eats My flesh, and drinks My blood, dwells in me, and I in him.  As the living Father has sent Me, and I live by the Father: so he that eats me, even he shall live by Me.

This is that Bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eats of this bread shall live forever.”

“Your words were found, and I did eat them: and Your word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of my heart: for I am called by Your name, O Lord God of hosts,” reads Jeremiah 15:16.
