    The Saint’s Communion With God
    by William Strong, A.M. (d. 1654)

    This is one of the most unique and insightful works you will ever read on having communion with God in his ordinances.

    William Strong, A.M. (d. 1654) was an active Westminster Puritan and Calvinistic minister. Obadiah Sedgwick, another assembly member, said of him, “…he was so plain in heart, so deep in judgment, so painful in study, so frequent, exact, and laborious in preaching, and, in a word, so eminently qualified for all the duties of the ministerial office, that he did not know his equal.”

    What does it mean to have true communion with Jesus Christ? Strong takes great pains and careful consideration to bring the reader into a thorough understanding of this most vital Christian doctrine. His main text, in which he masterfully exegetes and applies, is Exodus 20:24, “In all places where I record my name I will come unto thee, and I will bless thee.” Strong covers the text’s main idea that, 1. by recording, remembering or mentioning the name of God is meant setting up the worship of God in his ordinances, and, 2. that wherever the name of God is so recorded, remembered, or mentioned, (wherever God is worshipped in his ordinances), there he promises and commands a blessing, or there he will meet those that record his name in worshipping him with a blessing. This is true communion with God through his son Jesus Christ.

    Strong shows, 1. the grounds of all the fellowship and the communion that the saints have with God in ordinances, 2. the properties of this communion, 3. the several acts of communion, and, 4. those glorious ends that God aimed at in giving forth communion to the saints in ordinances.
