What benefits do we receive from the Lord´s Supper?

What is the benefit of such eating and drinking? That is shown us by these words, “Given and shed for you for the remission of sins”; namely, 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.

Partaking of this Sacrament brings us great benefits. For in this Sacrament our Lord Christ gives us forgiveness of sins, life and salvation. As a pledge and seal of these blessings He gives us His true body and blood, which He has sacrificed for each of us, when He paid the penalty for our sins.

1 Joh. 5:11: God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

Rom. 4:7-8: Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.
