For jf you go to the .Lord's 
$y&er without ittjifukawg the 
$e$fo# 9Jf that Ordinance, and 
the vpry great Concern you 
have in it, — -without &eu\g 
the Necefftfy and fft^Smg of a 
Redeemer 9 you iriU go W^h In- 
diHerence, and return without 
fuch Benefit ^s ypji might q- 
therwife hope for. 

To present this you flipuld 
feripflily con^der what Ac- 
count the Holy Scriptures 
have given u$ of the Condition 
we are in, both with refped to 
this life, and die Jife which 
is to come. 

That, is,— r^rThat we are by 
Nature Sinners : and that, as 
fuch, pod cannot tgkp flea- 
fpre ifi us trrr A n d th^t if we 
die, before we are reftpred to 
his Favour, we fhall be fepa,- 
rated from h}m, and miferable 
forever. 

This will lead you to in- 
quire, how the Nature of Man 
came to be thus* difordered, 
and prone to Evil ; for you 
mud not imagine, ' that God, 
who is infinitely good, created 
Man in fuch a State of Corrup- 
tion, as you now fee and feel 
him to be in ; but that he mult 
have fallen into this wretched 
Condition, fince he came out 
of the Hands pf his Creator.

And fo the Scripture in- 
forms us. — In the third Chap- 
ter of Genefis, we have this fol- 
lowing Account of the State 
of Man, Before, and After the 
Fall: 

That Adam and Eve, from 
whom fprang all Mankind, 
were treated in the Image of 
God ; that is, holy and inno- 
cent, having a perfeft Know- 
ledge of their Duty, a Command 
cf their Will and Affections, and 
a Power, through the Grace 
of God, to do what they faw fit 
to be done. 

In this Condition they were 
placed in Paradife, in a State 
of Trial, with a Promife of im 
mortal Life and Happinefs, if 
they fhould continue to Fear, 
to Love, to Honour and Obey 
their Creator ; as alfo, with an 
exprefs Warning of the dread- 
ful Confequence of their Difo- 
bedience. 

Notwithftanding which Warn- 
ing, they, through the Temp- 
tation of the Devil, tranfgreff- 
ed the Commands of God; 
and by doing fo, they did not 
only forfeit all Right to the 
Promife of eternal Life and 
Happinefs, but alfo contra&ed 
fuch a Blindnefs in the Under- 
flanding, fvich a Diforder in 
their Will and Ajfe£tions, as all 
their Pofterity feel to their 
Sorrow ; and became fubjeft

Sin, which is Mifery and 
Death. 

Concerning the Nature and 
Greatne/s of this Sin, we are 
to judge of it by the Great - 
ncfs of the Punifliment inflict- 
ed upon them and their Pof- 
lerity : 

— — For God, being infinite- 
ly Juft and Holy, could not in- 
jli£t a Punijbment greater than 
their Sin deferved. 

Now. this was the Occafion 
of that univerfal Corruption 
and Wickednefs, which you fee 
and hear of in the World, and 
which you cannot but, in fome 
Meafure, feel in your own Na- 
ture : For, as the Scripture 
informs us, Gen. v. 3. Adam 
begat bis Children in his own 
Likenefs ; that is, with fuch a 
depraved Nature as his was 
then become. 

And now confider into what 
a fad Condition thefe unhappy 
Offenders had brought them- 
felvcs, and remember that this 
is your own Condition, and the 
Condition of all their Po/ierity. 

fhe Law of Nature and 
Reafon was ftill in Force, and 
could not poffibly.be dilpenfed 

with. At the fame Time 

they found by fad Experience, 
That, as St. Paul defcribes the 
fallen State of Man, there was

they *wwldy they did not ; but 
the Evil that they would not y 
tfot they did, Rom. vii. 

There could not fure be a 
Condition more deplorable 
tl#n this ; — To live only to

doing fg,— To increafe their 
Guilt,— To 4lfplcafc their Cre-

This therefore gave Occa-

For God forefeeing this la-

they h^d fallen by departing 
from their Obedience., his 
Goodnefs had provided filch a

proifrifed Seed j God efttered 
ihte ft New Covenant with 
them* by way of Reritedy, for 
what #& paft, aftd could not 
b£urtdcme* 

We bav£ reafoii to believe, 
that this Neiv Covenant was 
more fttlfy explained to Adam, 
thiol is fet dowii in this fhoft 
Aotourit given us by Mofes, 
and as it is more fully explain-

was to this Purpofe : ■ That 
on Condition of their Jincere Re- 
pittance, and Jincere Obedience 
afterwards, they Jhbuld be re- 
fiortd to the Favour of God; 
and after Death, to that Life 
and Happittefs, which in their 
State of Innocence was promifed 
to theih Without tafting of Death; 
which Favour they had forfeit- 
id by their Difobedience. 



Attd when We confider, that 
6urjirjt Parents, now become 
Sinners, Rood in need of an 
Atonement, without which, 
while under the Difpleafure of 
God, their very Lives mud be 
aBttrthen; and it b<*ing de- 
creed by God, as it afterwards 
appeared, that without (bedding 
tf Blood there was to be no Re*

do therefore conclude, that, at 
this Time, God did appoint 
Sacrifices, or Sin-offerings, to 
make an Atonement for the 
Soul, and to forefhew the Sa- 
crifice of Jefus Chrift, (which 
we now commemorate) until 
he fhould' be offered in behalf 
of them and all their Pof- 
terity. 



And this appears from what 
follows in the next Chapter of 
Genefis, where we find Abel, 
by Faith, (that is, believing 
and depending upon this Or- 
dinance of God, for the Re- 
miffion of Sins, until- the pro- 
mifed Redeemer fhould come ; 
we find him) offering a Sacri- 
fice which was .acceptable to 
God, that is, a Sin-offering, 
which his Brother not doing, 
was reje&ed. 

But, here take notice and 
remember, that thefe Sacrifices 
could not take away Sin, but 
only through Obedience to 
the Ordinance of God, and 
through Faith in the promifed 
Seed, 

They were indeed very in- 
ftru&ive and proper to lead 
Sinners to Repentance, and 
Amendment of Life, when 
they faw, that their Sins could 
not be forgiven, but by the 
Death of an innocent Creature,

ment for their Sin. 

And as all good Men, before 
the Coming of Chrift* did 
mod religioufly keep up the 
Remembrance of the promi- 
fed Seed, and obtained the 
Pardon of their Sms, and Ac- 
ceptance with God, upon offer- 
ing Sacrifices through Faith in 
a Redeemer which was to come; 
So all Chrijlians, fince 
the Coming of that Redeemer, 
are obliged, as they hope for 
Pardon, and Favour from God, 
to keep up the Remembrance 
of God's great Mercy, in fend- 
ing us a Redeemer, and . of 
what that Redeemer has done I 
to fave us ; and this in the { 
Manner which He himfelf hath 
ordained. 

Now that you may be more 
fenfible of, and thankful to 
God for, this his infinite 
Loving-kindnefs, and that you 
may be fully convinced of 
the Neceffity and Bleffing of 
a Redeemer,, you ought to

Njcrar Vj Repentance you sure 
to understand a Man's con- 
demning himfdf, for having 
done any thing difpleafing to 

God; -either fuch Things 

11 God has forbidden, to keep 
ns from ruining ourfdves, or 
by omitting fuch Duties as he 
hat commanded, in order to 
fit m fot Happinefs when we 
die* 

So that if either the Fear of 
God's Diiblcafure, or iLove 
of Him, who has been fo good 
to you, will weigh with you, 
you will mod heartily condemn 

Eurfelf for every thing you 
ve done contrary to his Will 
and Command. 

You will alfo beg him moil 
earncftly to forgive you what 
is pad* and you will promife 
and refelve, through his Grace 
and Help, not wilfully to offend 
Him again.

——Confider what that Re-

What he did, and what he

Corifidef that he was the 
Son of God, that had done no 
Wrong, neither was Guile found

him. ■ ■■ -He hath prevailed 



with God-To overlook the

Death reconciled to God, we

and to do, what is neceflary 
to fit us for Heavert and Hap*

Concerning which, take

two great Ends of this Ordi-

are ; 

1 The Firji y To keep up the 
Remembrance of ChrilVs

The Second, To be a folemn 
Token of our Communion with 
Jefus Chrift, and of our Union 
and Charity with all his Fa- 
mily. 

To this End he has ordain- 
ed, that as all Chriftians, high

be is the Head :— -- and oneFa-

The Order for Adminiftration of the LORD'S 

SUPPER. 



Firft Rubrick. 

SO many as intend to be 
Partakers of this holy 
Communion (hall fignifi 
their Names to the 
Curate 9 at Uqft fame time the 
Day before* 



Second Rubrick. 

And if any of thofe be an 
open and notorious evil Liver, 
or have done any Wrong to 
his Neighbour by Word or 
Deed, fo that the Congrega- 
tion be thereby offended ; the 
Curate having Knowledge 
thereof, Jhall call him, and 
advertife him that in any 
wife he prefume not to come to 
the Lord's Table, until he has 
openly declared himfelf to have 



Observations upon it. 

IT is with great Reafon thit the 
Church hat given this Order; 
therefore do cot neglect it. 

You will have the Comfort of 
knowing either that your P after hath 
nothing to fay againft you ; Or if he. 
has, you will have the Benefit of bis 
Advice, and a good Bleffiog will at- 
tend your Obedience to the Church's 
Orders. 



If you are confeious to yourfelf, 
[tho* your Paftor fhould not know 
it] that your Life has been fuch as 
hath given Offence or Scandal to your 
Chriftian Profeifion, do not go to 
the Sacrament, until you have given 
fome plain Proofs of your Repent- 
ance, and Purpofe of leading a new 
Life. 

1 But then, as you hope for God's 
Grace and Mercy, do not put off 
the doing of this one Moment, left 
you provoke God to leave you to 
yourfilj ; for then you never will 
repent . 

truly repented and amended 
his former naughty Life, that the Congregation may 
thereby befatisfied, which before was offended ; and that he 
hath recompenfed the Parties to whom he hath done Wrong; 
or at lead declare himfelf to be in full Purpofe fo to do, as 
foon as he conveniently may*

not fuffering them to be Par-

until he knoweth them to be

And if one of the Parties,

forgive from the Bottom of

had trefpajfed againjl him, 

and to make amends for that 

he himfelf hath offended ; and 

the other Party will not be 

perfuaded to a godly Unity, 

but remain Hill in bis Fro-

Man ; fuch as will not forgive the 
Injuries they have received, nor 
make Satisfaction for the Iojuries 
they have done to others, muft 
not pre fume to go to the Lord's 
Table, Kit they receive a Curfe, in- 
Head of a BleJJing. 

Bat then fuch would do well to 
CQtfider, that while they are un- 
der thefe bad Difp fitiois, they are 
at Enmity with God as weil as 
with their Neighbour ; and there- 
fore are not qualified to a/k, much 
lefs to hope for, any Favour from 
him ; — there being no Mercy for 
him, who will not Jbcw Mercy to 
his Neighbour : — This being an ex* 
prefs Condition of our Peace with 
God, Matt vi. 15. 

And we fhould always remem- 
ber, that He that loveth not his 
Brother, abideth in Death, 1 John 
iii. 14. 

It is God who faith this, and 
dare we delay to be at Peace 
with our Neighbour even one Day, 
if we can help it ?

Now fay fecretly—-~~l will give at 
I am able, according to the Bleffing

O Heavenly Father, give us all 

Grace, that we may honour Thet 

both in our Lives, and by our Alm % 

, and that thou mayeft be glorified by 

thofe that receive them. 



Lay not up for yourfelves 
Treafures upon Earth, where 
the Ruft and Moth doth 
corrupt, arid where Thieves 
break through and fteal : 
but lay up for yourfelves 
Treafures in Heaven, where 
neither Ruft nor Moth doth 
corrupt, and where Thieves 
do not break through and

Whatsoever ye would that

That we may have the greateft Part

his Son our Saviour Jefus 
Chrift, not only to die for 
us, but alfo to be our fpiritual 
Food and Suftenance in that 
holy Sacrament. Which be- 
ing fo divine and comforta- 
ble a>Thing to them who re- 
ceive it' worthily ; and fo dan- 
gerous to them that will pre- 
fume to receive it unworthi- 
ly ; my Duty is to exhort you, 
in the mean Seafon, to con- 
fider the Dignity of that holy 
Myftery, and the great Peril 
of the unworthy Receiving 
thereof ; and fo to fearch and 
examine your own Confcien- 
ces, and that not lightly, 
and after the manner of Dif- 
femblers with God; but fo 
that ye may come holy and 
clean to fuch an heavenly 
feaft, in the Marriage-gar- 
ment required by God. in holy 
Scripture, and be received as 
worthy partaker^ of that ho- 
ly Table. 



The "Way and Means thereto 
is : •■Fir/1' 9 to examine your 
Lives and Converfations by the 
Rule of God's Commandments; 
and wherein-foever ye fhall 
perceive yourfelves to have of- 
fended, either by Will, tVord, 
oj: Deed,- there to bewail 



Obfervations. 

And, idly, to dcTotc your- 
felf to him, and to his Service, 
who is continually interceding for 
all fuch as go onto God by Him. . 

And Tery many wilr be the 
Benefits of embracing every Occa- 
fion that is offered you. 

You will not eafily fall into 
a (late of Sin and Security, be- 
ing fo often pat in mind of the 
Danger of going carelefly and 
unprepared. 



You hear in what a good Pre- 
paration conGfts :— — — -In confeifiog 
your Sin? to Almighty God, with 
full Purpofe of Amendment of Life— 
In exercifing the Duties of Charity, 
ia giving and forgiving , &c. 

All which being done in Obedience 
to the Command of Chrift, mud: 
needs be acceptable to the Divine 
Majefty, and, in time, gain yoo- 
all thofe Graces, which youcandefire 
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 bleffei 
Eternity. 

ConfHer how many there are, who* 
to their Sorrow, are deprived of this 
Means of Grace and Salvation:—— 
And bow many, through a mod fft li- 
pid Ignorance and Negligence, deprive 
ihemfelves of it.— — *Aod you cannot 
but give Gcd Thanks, both for the 
Opportunities which he affords you, 
and for the Graces he gives you, by 
your refolvirig to clofe with them.

in God's Behalf, I bid you 
all that are here prefent, 
and befeech you for the 
Lord Jefus thrift's fake, 
that ye will not refufe to 
eome thereto, being fo lov- 
ingly called and bidden by 
God himfelf. Ye know how 
grievous and unkind a Thing 
it is, when a Man hath 
prepared a rich Fe&ft, deck- 
ed his Table with all kind 
of Provifion, fo that there 
lacketh nothing but the 
Guefts to fit down ; and 
yet they who are called 
(without any Caufe) moft un- 
thankfully refufe to come, 
which of you in fuch a Cafe 
would not be moved ? Who 
would nat think a great Inju- 
ry and Wrong done unto him ? 
Wherefore, moft dearly be- 
loved in Chrift, take ye good 
heed, left ye, withdrawing 
yourfelves from this holy 
Supper, provoke God's In- 
dignation againft you. It is 
an eafy Matter for a Man to 
fay, I will not communicate, 
becaufe I am otherwife hin- 
der'd with worldly Bufinefs. 
But fuch Excufes are not fo 
eafily accepted and allowed 
before God. If any Man 
fay, I am a grievous Sinner, 
and therefore am afraid* to

Chutch, fo much concerned for my 
going to the Lord's Sapper ?— Is it 
not becauie (he knows that this is the 
moft acceptable Way of ferving God* 
of fecuring his Favour, and my own 



Salvation I 



Is it not belaufe (he would have 
me to look into the State of my 
Soul, as I muft do before I go to this 
Sacrament, that I may not live in the! 
Wa/ of Ruin, 'till I am furprized by 
Death, and utterly unprepared for 
the Account I muft give I 

Shall my Saviour's and his Mini/*

Is this the Way to (hew my Thank-

account of his Death i 

Is He the Better' for my Services ? 
Or do I not indeed ferve royfelf 
moft, when I obey his Commands, 
and accept of his Invitation ? 

Tkey that are ivAofc, indeed, need 
not a Phyfician ; but dare I fay this 
is my Caie ? — When I fo fendbly

thy holy Example all the Days of my Life. 

St. Mark ii. 17. / came not to call the Righteous, but 
. Sinners to Repentance. 

OLord, who haft called me to Repentance by thy Word 9 
and by this Ordinance, call me alfo by thy Grace; 
but call me fo powerfully, that ' I may not turn a deaf 
Ear, and that I may not refill thy Call : I am forced in- 
deed to bring my Sins along with me ; but it is to cru- 
cify them with thee, and with a full Purpofe, through thy 
Grace, never to return to thofe Sins I have repented of.

Lord, the Frailty of Man 
without Thee cannot but 
fall : In all Temptations, 
therefore, I befecch Thee, 
to fuccour me, that no Sin 
may ever get the Dominion 
over me. 



Give me a falutary Dread

dwn Heart : Make me tru- 
ly fenfible of the End of Sin, 
and mindful of my own In- 
firmities and Backflidings. 



Vouchfafe unto all Sin- 
ners a true Senfe of their 
unhappy State, a Fear of 
thy Judgments, and Grace 
and Strength to break their 
Bonds, 

Enlighten my Soul with 

faving Truth ; Correct 

me in Mercy, and reduce 
me when I go aft ray. Make 
yne ever mindtul of my 
Jatter End, and fix in my
