This meal is a humbling meal for the people of God. It strikes at the very root of human pride. After all, God does not give us crumbs, but the very best of his children.
In this memorial, we are reminded of the sacrifice of our Lord for us, and God is reminded of His promises to us through His Son; the promise to nurture us every time we meet as a body of worshippers.
The Table humbles sinners. The Table instructs the humble by gracing them through this means. Jesus Christ, the Only Son of God, died and rose again for our justification that we should be seated at this table together with other justified saints, humbled by the cross, and exalted by the resurrection.
