Breaking of Bread
“And they continued steadfastly in breaking of bread” (Acts 2:42).
“And upon the first day of the week … the disciples came together to break bread” (Acts 20:7).
One gathering of the early church that bound the disciples together, and which they observed continually was the breaking of bread. It was in obedience to the Lord’s command, “This do in remembrance of Me” (Luke 22:19), that they did so.
Today, we can continue to obey His request, and remember what He went through for us on the cross of Calvary. “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. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till He come” (1 Corinthians 11:23-25).
