Tuesday eManna: Eating and Drinking Christ


I have random posts every Tuesday, posting only what comes into mind. However, after the reflections on the happenings of our today's environment, I decided that I would post my reflections on the word of the Lord every Tuesday of the Week. To make this a double digest, I decided to make this a meme and would call it , "Tuesday eManna". To know what is Manna , know it here.
Today's eManna:

(1)And he showed me a river of water of life, bright as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb in the middle of its street. (2) And on this side and on that side of the river was the tree of life...
Rev 22:1-2

Every day we must eat and drink. The same is true with our spiritual life. In the Bible there are the river of life and the tree of life. The river of life is for our drinking, and the tree of life is for our eating. The river of life is a picture of Christ as the Spirit of life, and the tree of life is a picture of Christ as the supply of life to man in the form of food. God has no intention for us to worship Him in a religious way [like prostrating ourselves, or performing some rituals] . His intention is that we would take in Christ as food and drink. By enjoying our God as food and drink, Christ as the Spirit and life comes into us.

When the divine life comes into us, we are regenerated; we have God's life, and we become God's sons. To be a Christian is not a matter of fulfilling certain religious obligations or reforming our behavior.
[If you are a monkey, you cannot become human by reforming yourself. The only way to be human is to be born with a life from human parents] . In the same way, we do not become sons of God by doing anything, but by receiving God's life into us.

Day by day as we eat and drink of Christ, we will grow in the divine life. In this way we will be a people who are filled with God and will eventually express God in our living. This is the meaning of the Christian life.

Bible verses are taken from the Recovery Version of the Bible and Words of Ministry from “Christ is Spirit and Life” pp. 15-16. Both are published by Living Stream Ministry, Anaheim, CA (Repeat 12/11/97)
