Years ago, I taught Sunday school to 8, 9 and 10 year-olds. I remember one of the kids, I think it was the pastor’s daughter, drew a picture of the marriage supper of the lamb. The picture was a long table with many people seated down both sides. A stick figure at the head of the table had a word bubble that said, “Please pass the lamb.”
It was funny then, but now it has great significance to me. Jesus said, I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever, and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world. (Jhn 6:51)
That grossed a lot of people out and they left Him. What they failed to understand was that He was speaking in spiritual terms. We must consume the Lord. That is, we must take in His word, His Spirit, His presence so completely that it is like we literally eat of Him. He must be our sustenance. We must seek first His kingdom and all that we need will be supplied.
If you say, “Please pass the lamb”, you are asking for the Savior of this world to some live in you. It’s a great request to make. One that will save your life.
