Too Much Communion?

The early church celebrated the Lord’s Supper on a weekly basis. Luke the historian writes, “On the first day of the week we came together to break bread… (Acts 20:7).

Some believers today try to make a case for taking communion less frequently. They say that having it every Sunday somehow makes the Lord’s Supper less special. I disagree with that assertion.

A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of baptizing two of my great-nephews into Christ. The baptisms took place prior to the congregation’s Thursday evening worship service. After the baptisms, some family and friends gathered with some of the church staff to have communion. My wife and I stayed for the worship service and participated in communion once again. I had partaken in the Lord’s Supper the previous evening, at a Wednesday night service that I regularly attend. The following Sunday, I had communion with the congregation where I preach. So I celebrated the Lord’s Supper four times in one week! And guess what? Each time was very special!

I don’t think that there is much danger of any Christian having too much communion. Any time we have an opportunity to remember Jesus in a very special way, we should take advantage of that opportunity!
