The Holy Eucharist is the food for our souls which gives it life. Our Lord Jesus explains it like crystal clear water, but sadly so many of us cannot grasp its true meaning. Glory and Praise to Almighty God.....forever. Amen.

John's words move us, allow our hearts to grow closer to God, as they were given to him through the power of the Holy Spirit.

The flesh profits nothing because the feelings and/or will of the flesh is rooted in sin, bringing only devastation and failure. The Spirit is rooted in Christ, bringing with it power, love, and soundness of mind.
