Do You Want to be Close to Jesus? Here’s a Great Way!
The Son of God Himself in this distribution and reception of His body and blood is also giving, applying, and sealing to you all the benefits He gained for us by the giving of His body and the shedding of His blood. Moreover, His new testament of grace sanctifies, confirms, and seals these benefits to you. Furthermore, He bestows His whole being in so intimate a union that He joins Himself to you with that nature with which He is our brother and consubstantial with us, and through which He accomplished the work of our redemption and propitiation.
— Blessed Martin Chemnitz, The Lord’s Supper, p. 64.
