Partaking of the Lord’s Supper is one of the Christian’s most solemn and sweet acts of worship. Christ commands His disciples, “This do in remembrance of me” (Luke 22:19). To those who neglect the Supper, Thomas Wadsworth says, “I beseech you, consider whose command it is you break. It is the command of the Lord Jesus; to remember Him in this Supper is a debt you owe to Him, your Saviour, Lord, and Head; it is a command that bears the superscription of the most supreme authority in heaven or earth”.
This delightful book helps inform our minds and warm our hearts so that we may come to the Lord’s Supper with an eager readiness to see Christ Himself and His saving work. We prepare by reading these highly devotional comments on the Supper. What a help they are, and yet our experience of the grace of the Supper always exceeds our best attempts at understanding the blessed ordinance, because our Saviour deals with us more graciously in thes word and sacrament than we can ever deserve or desire.
