time at his own cost 2 Who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruit thereof; or who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the slock? I Cor. ix. 7. If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great matterif we shall reap your worldly things 1 Cor. ix. I 1. Do ye not know. that they who minister about holy things, live of the sacrifice; and they who wait at the altar, are partakers with the altar? Even so hath the Lord also ordained, that they who preach the Gospel should live of the Gospel. 1 Cor. ix. 13, 14. He that soweth little, shall reap little; and he that soweth plenteously, shall reap plentedusly. Let every man do according as he is disposed in his heart, not grudgingly, or of necessity; for God loveth a cheerful giver. 2 Cor. ix. 6, 7. Let him that is taught in the word, minister unto him that teacheth, in all good things. Be not deceived, God is not mocked : I'or whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he reap. Gal. vi. 6, 7. While we have time, let us do good unto all men: and especially unto them that are of the household of faith. Gal. vi. 10.

346 we should always remember the exceeding great love of our Master and only Saviour Jesus Christ, thus dying for us, and the innumerable benefits which by his precious blood-shedding he hath obtained for us, he hath instituted and ordained holy Mysteries, as pledges of his love, and for a continual remembrance of his death, to our great and endless comfort. To him therefore, with the Father, and the Holy Ghost, let us give, as we are most bounden, continual thanks, submitting ourselves wholly to his holy will and pleasure, and studying to serve him in true holiness and righteousness, all the days of our life. .Amen. T Then shall the Bishop say to those who come to receive the Communion, E who do truly and earnestly repent you of your sins, and are in love and charity with your neighbours, and intend to lead a new life, following the commandments of God, and walking from henceforth in his holy ways; draw near with faith, and take this holy Sacrament to your comfort; and make your humble confession to Almighty God, devoutly kneeling. 7 Then shall this general Confession be made by the Bishop and all those who are minded to receive the Holy Communion, humbly kneeling. LMIGHTY God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Maker of all things, Judge of all men ; we acknowledge and bewail our manifold sins and wickedness, which we from time to time most grievously have committed, by thought, word, and deed, against thy divine Majesty; provoking not justly, thy wrath and indig. nation against us.
