The Powerful Benefits of Communion

What benefits should you expect to receive when you celebrate the Lord’s Supper?

1 . Right reception of the Lord’s Supper has a “humbling” effect on the soul. The bread and wine serve as emblems of Christ’s body and blood and remind us of how sinful sin must be!

2 . Right reception of the Lord’s Supper has a “cheering” effect on the soul. How full, perfect, and complete is our salvation!

3 . Right reception of the Lord’s Supper has a “restraining” effect on the soul. The one who goes regularly to the Lord’s table finds it increasingly hard to yield to sin and conform to the world .

4 . 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 what a privilege it is to live for Him who died for us .

No wonder a follower of Jesus finds the Lord’s Supper a source of great blessing!
