John 6:56 - He that eats My flesh, and drinks My blood, dwells in Me, and I
in him.

Mutual Indwelling - Part 2: Living By Jesus

The Father had sent Jesus, and He lived by the Father; so now those who
will receive the miracle of salvation will live by Jesus just as He lived
by the Father. The Lord Jesus revealed this all in the context of the
people asking Him for a sign. He compared Who He was to the manna in the
wilderness, but revealed how He was the true bread that brought the very
life of God into our lives. Just as they depended on manna to live, we
depend on Him for His life. The partaking of the life of Jesus could have
not been given in stronger terms than to refer to His life as His flesh and
blood -a terminology already established in the First Covenant to describe
the life of the soul (Leviticus 17:11). Until we have this union with
Christ, we are dead in our trespasses and sins. When we are joined unto
Him, we have His life -eternal life!

Refuse all vain and deceitful philosophy after the elementary forces of
this world, and instead live by the faith of the Son of God! (Colossians
2:6-10; Galatians 2:20)
