Regular Observance Of The Lord's Supper
Regarding the example of the disciples eating the Lord’s Supper in Acts 20:7, consider the following illustrations:If our house payment is due on the 1st day of the month, how often should we pay it? Every month, right?The Passover was to be observed on the 14th day of the 1st month (Leviticus 23:5). How often were the Israelites to observe it? Every year, correct?The Israelites were to observe the Sabbath day of rest on the 7th day (Exodus 20:8-10). How often were they to observe it? - Every week as all would agree. Even though the ten commandments didn’t say every 7th day, since every week had a 7th day in it, the Israelites knew to observe the Sabbath every 7th day.In the same vein, consider that the Lord's Supper was eaten by Jesus’ disciples on the 1st day week (Acts 20:7). Since we are to follow their example (Phil 4:9, etc), how often would that mean we should eat the Lord’s Supper? Since every week has a 1st day in it, shouldn’t we eat the Lord’s Supper once a week, every 1st day?Conclusion: The Bible teaches congregations must come together to eat the Lord's Supper EVERY 1st day of the week.
