Another Argument for Weekly Holy Communion

A few months back, I argued for weekly Holy Communion in this post.  Well, I want to take another stab at it, but from a slightly different angle.

It’s a simple argument: since the eating of the bread and drinking of the cup is the communion of the body and blood of the Lord (1 Cor 10:14-16), when we observe it weekly, we are receiving Christ and his benefits also weekly.   But when we are infrequent in our observance of the Supper, a designated means of grace, we are thereby withholding Christ and his benefits from the covenant gathered community.

Now I’m aware that not all interpret the matter thus, even though it is my zealous prayer that they would.  Perhaps my zeal for a weekly celebration of the Lord’s Supper is getting the better of me here.
