On the first day of the week, the disciples came together to break bread.*
Jesus commanded the apostles to go and teach all nations baptizing those who obey THE GOSPEL in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and to teach them all things that He had commanded them (Matthew 28:19-20). And so the apostles obeying these commands said in 1 Corinthians 11:23, “For I have received of the Lord that which I also delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he brake it and said, 'Take eat, this is my body which is broken for you, this do in remembrance of me' After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped saying, 'This cup is the new testament in my blood, this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me'” This is the only feast Christ instituted to be done in His remembrance. Acts 20:7 teaches that the breaking of bread was done on the first day of the week and no other day. This shows that the weekly observance of the Lord's Supper was a regular practice and not monthly, quarterly, or annually. As we partake of the unleavened bread and fruit of the vine, our minds are to be centered on the events of the cross. In this act we have communion with Christ (1 Corinthians 10:16). As the communion is passed to each individual in the assembly, we each examine ourselves that we may partake of it in a worthy manner (1 Corinthians 11:27-29). Our visitors are encouraged to obey THE GOSPEL of Jesus Christ so that they too can truly commune with us as brethren.
