A story from the Fall 2018 College Conference held in Wanship, Utah
The Bible verses in the College Conference emphasized the importance of eating Christ. For example, John 6:57 says, “As the living Father has sent Me and I live because of the Father, so he who eats Me, he also shall live because of Me.” For us to actually experience this, we were sent off to spend personal time with the Lord. During that time, I practiced singing to the Lord, reading His word, praying, and simply learning to spend time with Him, even learning to just communicate with Him.
Another aspect of eating Christ that stood out to me in the conference was that whatever we are surrounded by, that is what we take in to us and that is what we end up expressing. On the one hand, this is quite serious, as we could end up with “Garbage in, garbage out.” On the other hand, if we’re taking Christ in, then we’re expressing Him. – Eli
