Speaking of the Words of Institution Dr. Martin Luther wrote the following concerning the Sacrament of the Altar;

Everything depends on these words.  Every Christian should and must know them and hold them fast.  He must never let anyone take them away from him by any other kind of teaching, even though it were an angel from heaven (Gal 1:18).  They are words of life and of salvation, so that whoever believes in them has all his sins forgiven through that faith; he is a child of life and has overcome death and hell.  Language cannot express how great and mighty these words are, for they are the sum and substance of the whole gospel.  (LW 36:277)
