J.C. Ryle Quotes: New Blog

Do You Ignore the Lord's Table?

"Nothing can possibly be of small importance which the Lord Jesus Christ ordained and appointed. Our Lord most distinctly commanded His disciples to 'eat bread' and 'drink wine' in remembrance of Him. What right has any Christian to disobey this commandment?

"No doubt a man may be saved, like the penitent thief, without having received the Lord's Supper. It is not a matter of absolute and indispensable necessity, like repentance, faith, and conversion. But it is impossible to say that any professing Christian is in a safe, healthy, or satisfactory condition of soul, who habitually refuses to obey Christ and attend the Lord's Table."

~ J.C. Ryle

The Upper Room, "Questions About the Lord's Supper", 428.


The Fifteenth Sunday after Trinity
 
 
 
The Collect.
 
 
KEEP, we beseech thee, O Lord, thy Church with thy perpetual mercy: and, because the frailty of man without thee cannot but fall, keep us ever by thy help from all things hurtful, and lead us to all things profitable to our salvation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
