How is the word made effectual to salvation? I shall take my leave of you, though I be The shorter catechism book departed from you, with the departing exhortation of the apostle: "And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you The shorter catechism book inheritance among all them which are sanctified.

It is required of them that would worthily partake of the Lord's supper, that they examine themselves of their knowledge to discern the Lord's body, of their faith to feed upon him, of their repentance, love, and new obedience; lest, coming unworthily, they eat and drink judgment to themselves.Luther's Preface to the Small Catechism.
