John 6:63

The Spirit alone gives eternal life. Human effort accomplishes nothing. And the very words I have spoken to you are spirit and life.

The essence of Jesus’ gift is found in the Holy Spirit alonenot in human effort. Life and understanding come through the gift of the Spirit. True life can be found only when the Holy Spirit infuses human life. To “eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood” involves a spiritual rather than a physical act.
