“Jesus was risen early the first day of the week”
“And upon the first day of the week … the disciples came together to break bread” (Acts 20:7).
“This do in remembrance of Me” (1 Corinthians 11:24).
Since the end of World War I, in many countries November 11th is set aside as a special day of remembrance, to remind us of those who gave their lives in the line of duty.
However, the first day of the week should be a day of remembrance for every believer. It is the day when the Lord rose from the dead, and the day when the early Christians met to remember the Lord Jesus in the breaking of bread.
Once a year there are special ceremonies, speeches, and moments set aside for quiet reflection and remembrance of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for the freedom of humanity. But as believers we need more than just a yearly reminder of what our Saviour did for us. “As often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till He come” (1 Corinthians 11:26).
