The primary reason that Christians gather for Sunday worship is identified in a fleeting reference of Acts 2. The plot of that passage is to tell the story of a tragedy-turned-miracle — the resurrection of Eutychus after he fell from a window to his death. Luke, the writer of the book, started the story by noting the time and context of the event. It occurred “on the first day of the week, when we were gathered together to break bread.”
That passage alone provided an apostolic example that saints have followed for more than 2,000 years, as churches around the world partake in the Lord’s Supper on the first day of the week. To help brethren appreciate the purpose of that memorial feast, men typically give short talks about the death, burial and resurrection of Christ, the purpose of His sacrifice, the prophecies about his life and death, and the biblical accounts of the institution of the Lord’s Supper, among other themes.
This page provides links to such talks, as well as articles and related Bible passages, to help men prepare their thoughts in presiding at the table in their own congregations.
