“The Lord’s Supper works for good. It is an emblem of the marriage-supper of the Lamb (Rev. 19:9), and an earnest of that communion we shall have with Christ in glory. It is a feast of fat things; it gives us bread from heaven, such as preserves life, and prevents death. It has glorious effects in the hearts of the godly. It quickens their affections, strengthens their graces, mortifies their corruptions, revives their hopes, and increases their joy. Luther says, ‘It is as great a work to comfort a dejected soul, as to raise the dead to life’; yet this may and sometimes is done to the souls of the godly in the blessed Supper.”

One thought on “The Lord’s Supper”
Amen! When I realize how much I have to be grateful for in Christ, I feel like nothing could ever make me really unhappy again. Beside the “weight of glory” that we touch in the Supper, all the trials in the world seem puny.
