“In relation to the Son, we commune with him in grace: “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all” (2 Cor. 13:14). The one who is “full of grace and truth” (John 1:14), the Lord Jesus Christ, is the one who showers us with his grace: “For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace” (John 1:16). We enjoy Christ, the God man, and we meditate not only on the grace given to us because of his work but also on the grace given to us because of who he is (i.e., his person). The greatness of Christ’s person far excels even the benefits we receive from his work for us. In the Lord’s Supper, which is a Trinitarian activity, we receive grace from Christ in our communion with him. The gift of the body and blood is a gift given to us by the Father; the body and blood represent the now resurrected Son; and we receive Christ into our hearts afresh through the work of the Spirit. The gospel is preached visibly to us, and by faith, in the power of the Spirit, we enter into communion with our Savior. He comes to us anew to comfort us with his promises and to stir up in us faith, hope, and love.” from “God Is: A Devotional Guide to the Attributes of God” by Mark Jones
