Frequency Of Lord’s Supper

Acts 20:7 reads "And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them …"

The church I worship with does this very same thing; we come together on the first day of the week to break bread, that is, eat the Lord’s Supper (I Corinthians 10:16), and have preaching. Does the church you worship with do this?

We must follow the Acts 20:7 example:

Philippians 4:9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and … God … shall be with you.

I Corinthians 4:16 Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.

Philippians 3:17 be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample

II Thessalonians 3:9 to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us

I Corinthians 11:1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.

Hebrews 6:12 That ye be … followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Not only should the Lord’s Supper be eaten on the first day of the week, it should be eaten on every first day of the week – it should be a regular observance.

To show we must eat the Lord’s Supper EVERY First Day of the week, consider Exodus 20:8: "Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy." It does not say, "remember every sabbath day," it just says, "remember the sabbath day.” How did the Israelites know they were supposed to keep every 7th day holy? Because every week has a 7th day in it. Likewise, we know that we must eat the Lord’s Supper every first day of the week, because every week has a first day in it.
