During the last supper, Jesus instructed His disciples to remember Him in the days to come.

Luke 22:19-20 (NIV)
[19] And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”
[20] In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.
Following the footsteps of Jesus, the early church gathered to break bread. This is to remember the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ for our sins as it is recorded in
1 John 2:2 (NIV) – He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.
The first Christians devoted their time to break bread showing their unity in Christ.
True unity only comes in Christ, who overcomes everything that divides us and brings all creation to God.
God unites His children through the body of Christ.
