How does Le Chatelier's Principle apply to cell potentials?

Copied from this site: http://www.scramlinged.com/resources/Notes+on+Voltaic+Cells.pdf

Qualitatively, the effect of concentration of cell potential follows Le Chatelier's Principle. If the concentration of the reactants in the equlibrium constant expression increases, that pushes the reaction in the forward direction, the reaction becomes more spontaneous and the reaction potential increases.
