    This is very interesting Theo. It seems you’ve done your study. In regards to your Eucharist thoughts, I believe it is done more in memory of Him than actually partaking in Him. He made that clear it was in memory of Him as shown in Luke 22:19. The significance is his body is the bread as He said in John 6:48. What He is pointing out is that He is the way into the kingdom of God as He said in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes unto the Father except through me.” I don’t mean to offend by the way, but I believe it is clear the act of eating the bread and drinking from the cup is symbolic and is only done in memory of Jesus.

    As for your next point I believe that is correct what you’ve noticed there. It is imperative to remain in Christ and to strive to emulate His life and teachings. Being transformed, a true conversion, should be evidenced by the fruit of a person who truly believes, repents, and accepts Jesus as Lord. In translative research it becomes evident it is a ‘continual’ seeking of Christ, working on getting to know Him and following His teachings is necessary. Also placing Him first above all else. Jesus replied, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” – Matthew 22:37-39.

    Awesome read. Thank you for that. C.S. Lewis was a great man of God. I have been reading about Smith Wigglesworth lately. Absolutely love how God worked through Him. I would recommend also watching Mark Hemans on YouTube to see God at work for yourself.

    As I also said today I find you interesting to talk to and I don’t believe it was a divine appointment today. I certainly hope to speak with you again sometime. Let me know what you think of Mark.

    In John 3:16 the distinction between “shall” and “may” makes a big difference! Thank you for the clarification and enlightening me on this point.
