Not Merely An Agreement

“I am the bread of life; he who comes to me shall not hunger, and he who believes in me shall never thirst.
John 6:35

Belief is not merely an agreement with facts in the head, it is also an appetite for God in the heart, which fastens on Jesus for satisfaction. …
Therefore eternal life is not given to people who merely think that Jesus is the Son of God.
It is given to people who drink from Jesus as the Son of God…
The point of these images of drinking and eating is to make clear the essence of faith.
It is more than believing that there is such a thing as water and food.
Faith is coming to Jesus and drinking the water and eating the food so that we find our hearts satisfied in Him.
