Thomas Watson on the Lord’s Supper

thFrom Thomas Watson’s comments on 1 Cor. 10:16, “Is not the cup of blessing which we bless a sharing in the blood of Christ? Is not the bread which we break a sharing in the body of Christ?

The Lord’s Supper is the most spiritual and sweetest ordinance that ever was instituted. Here we have more immediately to do with the person of Christ. In prayer, we draw nigh to God. In the sacrament we become one with him. In prayer we look up to Christ, in the sacrament, by faith, we touch him. In  the word preached, we hear Christ’s voice, in the sacrament we feed on him.

Let’s come to the Lord’s table expectantly this Lord’s Day.
