on
the
Sacrament.
But
becaufe
t
vnderttd
you had
a
Sacrament
appointed for this
day
,
I
haue
altered
a
link
that courfe;the
hearing
of
that
bath fomewhat
diverted
mec,
and caufed
me
at
this time
to
pitch
vpon
the
other
point
which
I
named
to
you, that
except
a
man
be in
Chrìft,hee
ought
not to apply
any
priviledge
to himfelfe,if
hee:
be, I
fay,
all
belongs
to
him.
When
you
come
/to
receiue
the
Sacrament,
it
is
a
very great
pri-
,viledge
to
come
to
medie
with
thole
holy my-
;fferies,
to
haue
thófe Symboles
given
to
you
of
the loue
and
favour
of
God
in
Chriff;
but
yet you mutt remember
this,
that
except
you
be
in
Chriff
,
you

is a

they
fhould
doe,
to prepare themfelues
to
,the
Sa-

that
they
may
be
worthy
receivers;
hee giues
it
in
this fhort
precept
:
Let
.every
m.,in

hee)
examine hire
felfe, and

let
him
cate
this
bread
and
drinke
this cup.
Now
what
is
a
man
to
examine himfelfe
of
furely
all
that
come
to
the Lords Table
, are
to
examine
themfelues
concerning thefe
two
things:
z
Whether
he
be
in
Chriff,and
fo
whether
he

any
right
at
all
to
come neere
to
him
in
that
holy ordinance.

he
