John Wesley on the Means of Grace

Is not the eating of that [communion] bread, and the drinking of that [communion] cup, the outward, visible means, whereby God conveys into our souls all that spiritual grace, that righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy ghost, which were purchased by the body of Christ once broken and the blood of Christ once shed for us? Let all, therefore, who truly desire the grace of God, eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.

Sermon 16, 5.195
