            For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.

What is the benefit of eating and drinking?

These words, “Given and shed for you for the forgiveness of sins,” show us that in the sacrament, forgiveness of sins, life, and salvation are given us through these words. For where there is forgiveness of sins, there is also life and salvation.
