Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

In the Lord's Supper we receive the true body of Christ, which He gave unto death for our sins; and we receive the true blood of Christ, which He shed as payment for our sins. Therefore, as surely as we eat of Christ's body and drink His blood is as surely as we can be confident that Christ wishes to grant us that which He achieved by shedding His blood, namely, the forgiveness of sins.—Blessed Johann Gerhard, Postilla II:204.
