And, 3dly, to devote yourfelf to him, and to his Service, who is continually interceding for all fuch as go unto God by Him.
his Son our Saviour Jefus Chrift, not only to die for us, but also to be our fpiritual Food and Sustenance in that holy Sacrament. Which being fo divine and comfortable a Thing to them who receive it worthily; and fo dangerous to them that will prefume to receive it unworthily; my Duty is to exhort you, in the mean Seafon, to confider the Dignity of that holy Mystery, and the great Peril of the unworthy Receiving You hear in what a good Prethereof; and fo to fearch and paration confifts :------ In confeffing your Sins to Almighty God, with examine your own Confcien- full Purpofe of Amendment of Life--ces, and that not not lightly, In exercifing the Duties of Charity, and after the manner of Dif-in giving and forgiving, &c. femblers with God; but fo that ye may come holy and clean to fuch an heavenly feast, in the Marriage-garment required by God in holy Scripture, and be received as worthy partakers of that holy Table.
All which being done in Obedience to the Command of Christ, must
needs be acceptable to the Divine Majefty, and, in time, gain you all thofe Graces, which you can defire or ftand in need of.
And for your Comfort, remember, that if you are prepared as you ought to be, for this Sacrament, you are prepared for Death, and for a bleed Eternity.
The Way and Means thereto is: Firt, to examine your Lives and Converfations by the Rule of God's Commandments; and wherein-foever ye fhall perceive yourselves to have offended, either by Will, Word, or Deed, there to bewail
And very many will be the Benefits of embracing every Occafion that is offered you.
You will not easily fall into a state of Sin and Security, being fo often put in mind of the Danger of going carelefly and unprepared.
Confider how many there are, who, to their Sorrow, are deprived of this Means of Grace and Salvation :-----And how many, through a most stupid Ignorance and Negligence, deprive themselves of it. And you cannot but give Ged Thanks, both for the Opportunities which he affords you, and for the Graces he gives you, by your refolving to clofe with them.
