This Is The Connection Between This Sacrament And The Eternal Life
(Rom 6:23) For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
So through the forgiveness obtained from Sacrament, we are pardoned from the death imputed on us as a result of the sin, which was made possible through His Blood shed on the holy cross.
This is why the Lord said:
(John 6:54) "Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.
(John 6:51) "I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world."
(John 6:33) "For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world."
(John 6:57) "As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me.
And if Communion grants life, it follows that whoever abandons it is devoid of Life.
(John 6:53) Then Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you.
