On Taking the Lord’s Supper

J.C. Ryle addresses sincere believers who, out of a sense of their remaining sin, feel themselves unworthy to approach the Lord’s Supper (i.e. the “Communion rail” as he called it). Here is what he says:

“They are forgetting that the Lord’s Supper was not intended for unsinning angels, but for men and women compassed with infirmity, dwelling in a world full of temptations, and needing mercy and grace every day they live. A sense of our own utter unworthiness is the best worthiness we can bring to the Communion rail.”

J.C.Ryle, Practical Religion, on “Going to the Table”, p. 157
