It is worth receiving the Lord’s Supper frequently: to get strength for Christian life.
You would never purposely starve yourself, would you? Of course not! When we’re hungry, we feel lousy, until we eat. In fact, some of us have been known to eat from time to time, even when we are not actually hungry—just to keep up our strength.
It makes you wonder why so many people starve the souls inside of them. Chiefly, we humans need gospel food to sustain the life of our eternal spirits. Furthermore, we need energy from God to fuel our love for others, our service to our Savior by way of our labors, and the completion of our responsibilities to our families. Without a source of food for our souls, we would feel sick and finally starve.
But there’s no need for that to happen to you. The price of your redemption, Christ’s true body and blood, are available to you often—and are easily accessible. Come again soon to the banquet the Holy Spirit has prepared for your spirit in Holy Communion. And enjoy a feast for your soul!
Each feeds his body, just as Christ does the church. (Ephesians 5:29)
