“The Chief Doctrine”

“Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life,
and I will raise him up on the last day.”
[John 6:54]

If you apprehend Christ as your head, hold His flesh and blood in high esteem, that is, grant them the power and the honor they deserve, namely, that they are a flesh and blood which impart life, banish hell, mightily drive away and expel devil and sin, then you have the true chief doctrine of the Christian faith. This you must find in the word “My”, that this flesh and blood have the power to abolish sin and death, to bestow life and righteousness, and to break down all the gates of heaven and earth.
