Why Do Faithful Congregations Eat The Lord’s Supper Every First Day Of The Week?

Acts 20:7 reads "And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them …." I Cor 10:16 shows the breaking of bread in Acts 20:7 is referring to the Lord’s Supper.

All believers admit we should follow the Bible (II Tim 3:16-17). Some don’t do a very good job of it, but all admit we should. Well, if we are going to follow Acts 20:7, how often would we eat the Lord’s Supper?

Suppose we woke up on the first day of the week (Sunday in our society) and made up our mind that we were going to follow the Bible that day. Wouldn’t we follow Acts 20:7 and eat the Lord’s Supper that day? Then suppose we woke up the next day on Monday and decided again we were going to follow the Bible that day. We would NOT eat the Lord’s Supper that day would we?, because the example of Acts 20:7 is the first day of week. I suggest we would do the same on Tuesday through Saturday. Then when Sunday came around again and we woke up and made up our mind we were going to follow the Bible that day, wouldn’t we follow Acts 20:7 and eat the Lord’s Supper again that day? Do you see how that if we are trying to follow the Bible every day, we would end up eating the Lord’s Supper every first day of the week, because every week has a first day in it?
