Christ’s body and blood are in, with, and under the bread and wine, but what difference does that make? Luther makes it very clear that the purpose of Jesus’ institution is to give forgiveness, life, and salvation to sinners. This supper connects us to the deliverance during the Passover that our Lord saved His people from slavery. Although not slaves in a foreign land, we are freed from the slavery of sin and damnation by His blood. Take and eat Christ for your forgiveness, life, and salvation! Thanks be to God.
