Christians from the first “were continually devoting themselves … to the breaking of bread … together … praising God” (Acts 2:42-47). One of the Bible’s writer testifies, “On the first day of the week [Sunday], when we were gathered together to break bread” (Acts 20:7).
Four reasons to be devoted to worshiping Christ together:
1. He is the “living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them … and yet did not leave Himself without witness” (Acts 14:15-17).
2. “Not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son” Jesus Christ (1 John 4:10).
3. His greatest commandment is: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and with all your mind” (Matthew 22:37).
4. To establish “the Lord’s Supper”, Christ “took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, ‘This is My body, which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.’ In the same He took the cup … saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this … in remembrance of Me.’ For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes” (1 Corinthians 11:20-26).
