So, overall, eating his flesh and drinking his blood means believing him. And, more specifically, I take eating his flesh to mean reading the bible and taking in the Word of Life, but what about drinking the blood of Jesus? Is it the same thing, or did Jesus mean something more specific? My first guess is the drinking his blood means praying. Two most important things are reading the bible and praying, so it makes sense. But blood of Jesus also means the sacrifice he made for my sins, the justification and sanctification of me through his blood. Is it then just remember this and believing him, or praying? Perhaps it's both, because only reasons I can even I can stand and face God and pray is because I have been justified through the blood of Jesus. Perhaps then, the drinking the blood does mean praying.
Application: eat his flesh, drink his blood
