He opens His hand...

A Reformation Day, All Saints' Day exhortation, from Psalm 145

We commune now with Christ, and all His saints. Past generations have declared God’s glory and works to us, and we rejoice with them in what God has done. We proclaim Christ’s death in this meal, to our children and to the whole world. God has opened His hand and given us bread from heaven; the wine of joy. He has satisfied our desire in giving His Son Jesus Christ. He alone is our mediator. God’s grace alone brings Him to us, not our works. Only our faith in Him obtains His salvation, not our obedience. Only Scripture is our ultimate authority to know this. We reserve all glory for this to God alone.
