What is the Lord's Supper?

The Lord's Supper is an ordinance for redeemed sinners. 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, our love enlarged, our besetting sins weakened and our graces strengthened. It will draw us nearer to Christ.

- J. C. Ryle
