Sabbath a'Brakel: The Objective of the Lord's Supper
To confess the Lord Jesus Christ, His doctrine, and His church belongs to the most significant objectives of the Lord's Supper. Observe this in the following passages: "This do ye...in remembrance of Me....ye do show the Lord's death till he come" (1 Cor. 11:25-26); "For we being many are one bread, and one body" (1 Cor. 10:17). It is an absolutely necessary, appropriate, and Christ-glorifying duty to confess Christ, for this duty builds up the congregation and refreshes the soul (II: 65).
