Remembering Our Debt at the Table

Right reception of the Lord’s Supper has a sanctifying effect on the soul.
The bread and wine remind us how great is our debt of gratitude to our Lord, and how thoroughly we are bound to live for Him who died for our sins. They seem to say to us, “Remember what Christ has done for you, and ask yourself whether there is anything too great to do for Him”.
