From one loaf of bread

MOORE — First, thank you all that were able to attend the gospel meeting. It was an uplifting success and we were blessed by friends and visitors from the community and from nine cities in Oklahoma, as well as friends from Texas that were able to attend.

Malcom Kniffen of Waco, Texas, had a wonderful series of sermons. We have been blessed by his lessons from the Word of God.

We are happy to continue introducing you to the East Ridge church of Christ. Even though you’ve driven by the building from time to time, you probably know little about its worship and work.

As we discussed last week, one of the distinct things about the churches of Christ (Romans 16:16) is the weekly observance of the Lord’s Supper. We follow the doctrine shared by the Holy Spirit in Acts 20:7 where Luke records that “And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them.”

The early church’s practice of “breaking bread” every Lord’s day was not a common meal, for the apostle Paul reprimands the Corinthians later for turning ‘His Supper’ into one (1 Corinthians 11:18-22). Instead, it was the observance of the Lord’s Supper that the apostle describes beginning in verse 23 of 1 Corinthians 11.

As we at East Ridge seek help from the Word of God to determine how we should observe the Lord’s Supper, we go to Paul’s writings beginning in verse 23 for direction.

He says, “For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That 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.”
