For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.
Proclaim the Lord’s death? Why would we proclaim the Lord’s death? For two reasons: 1) His death is the miraculous salvation price paid for our souls. 2) We cannot proclaim His death without remembering His resurrection, His absolute, complete triumph over death and His promise that we are included in this triumph. It is a proclamation: “Hear ye, hear ye, Jesus has died for our sins. We are redeemed!”
