[b]Milk-white![/b](Thomas Watson, "The Lord's Supper")"The blood of Jesus cleanses us from all our sin!" 1 John 1:7Christ's blood is a CLEANSING blood.As the merit of Christ's blood pacifies Godso the virtue of it purifies us. Christ's blood is heaven's bath. It is a laver to wash in. It washes a crimson sinnermilk-white!The Word of God is a looking-glass to show us our spotsand the blood of Christ is a fountain to wash them away! "On that day a fountain will be openedto cleanse them from all their sins and defilement!" Zechariah 13:1But this blood will not washif it is mingled with anything. If we mingle our good works with Christ's bloodit will not wash. Let Christ's blood be pure and unmixedand there is no spot which it cannot wash away! It purged out Noah's drunkennessand Lot's incest!

I've got this little gem of a book in my library. Watson has some tremendous insight into the Lord's Supper, and almost every sentence is filled to the brim with purity and sound doctrine. The book is only about 60 pages - but, as with all Puritan literature, how much truth, how many anointed illustrations are within those 60 pages! Enough to fill an entire encyclopedea.It's well worth the $8.00 or whatever it is they're selling it for on Amazon.Brother Paul
