Humbling, Cheering, Sanctifying, Restraining Pt. 1

(1) Right reception of the Lord's Supper has a "humbling"
effect on the soul. The sight of the bread and wine as
emblems of Christ's body and blood, reminds us how
sinful sin must be--if nothing less than the death of God's
own Son could make satisfaction for it, or redeem us from
its guilt! Never should we be so "clothed with humility,"
as when we receive the Lord's Supper.

- J. C. Ryle, The Lord's Supper
