Matthew 26:26–29 (ESV)

Institution of the Lord’s Supper

26 Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.” 27 And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you, 28 for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.29 I tell you I will not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”

 

It is interesting that the Word’s of Institution are different in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and Corinthians.  They are not exactly the same.  But there is one thing that is the same in all of them.  They all say “this is my body”.  It does not say this resembles my body, or this symbolizes my body… it is always “this is my body.”  Many denominations believe that communion is symbolic… but Jesus never said this.  He is very clear… “this is my body.”  This is why the Lutheran Church believes that the bread and wine in the Sacrament are Christ’s body and blood by sacramental union. By the power of His word, Christ gives His body and blood in, with, and under the consecrated (blessed) bread and wine.  Why do we go to communion?  Christ says “for the forgiveness of sins.”

 

I pray:  “Lord, may Thy body and Thy blood Be for my soul the highest good!” Amen.

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
