The Lord’s Supper by Thomas Watson “4. We must come to the Lord’s Supper with LONGING hearts. Say as Christ, ‘I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover,’ Luke 22:15. If God prepares a feast—we must get an appetite. As David longed for the water of the well of Bethlehem, 2 Samuel 23:15, so should we long for Christ in the Lord’s Supper. Holy desires are the sails of the soul which are spread to receive…

The Lord’s Supper by Thomas Watson “Branch 3. Does Christ offer His body and blood to us in the Supper? Then with what solemn preparation should we come to so sacred an ordinance! It is not enough to do what God has appointed—but as He has appointed. ‘Prepare your hearts unto the Lord,’ 1 Samuel 7:3. The musician first puts his instrument in tune—before he plays. The heart must be prepared and put in tune—before…

The Lord’s Supper by Thomas Watson “4. Christ’s blood is a SOFTENING blood. There is nothing so hard, that it cannot be softened by this blood. It will soften a stone! Water will soften the earth—but it will not soften a stone; but Christ’s blood mollifies a stone. It softens a heart of stone. It turns a flint—into a spring. The heart, which before was like an adamantine…

The Lord’s Supper by Thomas Watson “2. Let us prize Christ’s BLOOD in the Lord’s Supper. It is drink indeed, John 6:55. Here is the nectar and ambrosia, which God Himself delights to taste of! This is both a balsam and a perfume. That we may set the higher value upon the blood of Christ—I shall show you seven rare supernatural virtues in it: 1. It is a RECONCILING blood. ’And…

The Lord’s Supper by Thomas Watson “Branch 1. Was Christ’s body broken for us? Let us be deeply affected with the great love of Christ. Who can tread upon these hot coals, and his heart not burn? Cry out with Ignatius, ’Christ, my love, is crucified!’ If a friend should die for us—would not our hearts be much affected with his kindness? That the God of heaven should die for us—how should this…

“1689 London Baptist Confession Chapter 11: Of Justification 1._____ Those whom God effectually calls, he also freely justifies, not by infusing righteousness into them, but by pardoning their sins, and by accounting and accepting their persons as righteous; not for anything wrought in them, or done by them, but for Christ’s sake alone; not by imputing faith itself, the act of believing, or any other evangelical obedience…

“I know not but there is the same objective, fullness, and sufficiency in the obedience and sufferings of Christ, for the salvation of sinners, as there is in the Holy Spirit for their renovation: both are infinite, yet both are applied under the direction of infinite wisdom and uncontrollable sovereignty. But great and necessary as this mercy is, if nothing more than this had been done, not…

“But the word of God declares to us, again and again, that man fell from his holy and happy estate. We have not only the voice of reason declaring to us the same truth, but we have also observation, and painful and bitter experience. Should any one be disposed, for a moment, to doubt what the word of God says on the subject, we call upon such…

Expository Thoughts on the Gospel of Luke J.C. Ryle Luke 23:44-49 “Let us observe in these verses — the miraculous signs which accompanied our Lord’s death on the cross. We are told that there was ‘a darkness over all the earth’ for three hours. ‘The sun was darkened, and the curtain of the temple was torn in two.’ It was proper and right that the attention of…

Expository Thoughts on the Gospel of Luke J.C. Ryle Luke 23:39-43 “We see, firstly, in the history before us — the sovereignty of God in saving sinners. We are told that two criminals were crucified together with our Lord, one on His right hand and the other on His left. Both were equally near to Christ. Both saw and heard all that happened during the six hours…
