These Great Things

"Whoever feeds on My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him."
JOHN 6:56
These Great Things
You must not view these words with your physical eyes as you begin to discuss topics such as the conquest of death, devil, and hell, the forgiveness of sins, and eternal life. These demand other thoughts. . . This doctrine of the flesh and blood of Christ is the power and the strength to rise from the dead. Therefore His flesh and blood must not be regarded as common flesh and blood but as endued with the power over all misery in heaven and on earth, namely, over sin, death, devil, world, and whatever else is cruel and terrifying. These great things are the concern of this flesh and blood.

From Sermons on the Gospel of John, Chapters 6-8 (Luther's Works 23:141)
