John 6:57

57 As the living Father has sent Me and I live because of the Father, so he who 1eats Me, he also shall alive because of Me.

571 To eat is to take food into us that it may be assimilated organically into our body. Hence, to eat the Lord Jesus is to receive Him into us that He may be assimilated by the regenerated new man in the way of life. Then we live by Him whom we have received. It is by this that He, the resurrected One, lives in us (14:19-20).
