What is a Sacrament?
While they were eating, Jesus took a loaf of bread, and after blessing it he broke it, gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.” Then he took a cup, and after giving thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you; for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
As Lutherans we believe in two sacraments; communion and baptism. A sacrament has three parts:
1) It is something Jesus commanded us to do;
“Take, eat; this is my body…drink from it, all of you”
2) It uses a physical element-something we can touch and sometimes taste;
Communion-Bread & wine
3) It gives us God’s grace, love, and forgiveness
“Drink from it, all of you; for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins”
