Thoughts on the Lord's Supper from Flavel

The Lord’s supper is memorative, and so it has the nature and use of a pledge or token of love, left by a dying to a dear surviving friend. It is like a ring plucked off from Christ’s finger, or a bracelet from His arm, or rather His picture from His breast, delivered to us with such words as these: “As oft as you look on this, remember Me; let this help to keep Me alive in your remembrance when I am gone, and out of sight.” - John Flavel
