Breaking of Bread
The Bible places great importance on remembering Jesus in his death. Believers in the early days of the church broke bread on a weekly basis and set the pattern for us to continue to do so. (Acts 2:42, 20:7) The Lord Jesus also asked us to “do this in remembrance of Me.” (1 Corinthians 11:24-25) As He instructed, we meet together to remember Him in His death through partaking of the bread, which speaks of His body broken for us, and drinking the wine which reminds us of His shed blood. In so doing, we proclaim His death until He comes again. It may be today!
Bible Reading and Prayer
The Bible has clear instruction on the need for prayer. (Ephesians 6:18, James 5:16, Philippians 4:6) It was also the regular practice of early church to meet together for corporate prayer. (Acts 2:42, Acts 12:12) Gathering as an assembly to pray, we acknowledge our dependence on God and need for Him in our lives. As our culture continues to deteriorate, we desperately needs the Lord’s guidance and help for our lives.
The public reading of scripture and study of God’s Word also nourishes us spiritually and helps us grow in the faith. It too is necessary for Christians as they meet together. (1 Timothy 4:13, 1 Corinthians 14:29) In 1 Timothy 3:16, we see that God’s Word is profitable for doctrine, reproof, for correction, and instruction in righteousness. In a world where there is so much corruption and deception, how much we need this!
It is also our privilege to have outreach opportunities where we present the gospel. We do so by having a Sunday School for the children where they learn Bible stories and about Jesus and His love for them. We also have periodic gospel services where we invite the community for a meal and share God’s love with them.
