J.C. Ryle on the Lord’s Supper

Matthew 26:26-29 is part of our read-through-the-Bible plan for today:

Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.” And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you,  for this is my blood of the  covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.  I tell you I will not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”

J.C. Ryle  said this about The Lord’s Supper:

By receiving it we publicly declare our sense of guilt, and need of a Savior–our trust in Jesus, and our love to Him–our desire to live upon Him, and our hope to live with Him. Using it in this spirit, we shall find our repentance deepened, our faith increased, our hope brightened, and our love enlarged–our besetting sins weakened, and our graces strengthened.
