Many things the Christian Church does here on earth is only “until He (Christ) comes” (1 Corinthians 11:26). The context of this phrase is the Lord’s Supper, which Jesus instituted and commanded the disciples to “Do this in remembrance of Me” (Luke 22:19) and which Paul reminded the church in Corinth the importance of maintaining. Jesus or Paul never prescribed how often remembrance of Jesus around bread and a cup should take place. Having said that, let me speak to your heart.
It is my conviction that there are two things missing with most of us related to this question. The most important issue is love for the Person. Jesus often challenged His disciples as to whether He was first in their love; “Whoever loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me” (Matthew 10:37; also John 21:15-19). Even the dearest human relations were not to come before the Lord.
We can take this principle and apply it to anything in life. Does anything come before the Lord Jesus? The word “worthy” points to all other persons and things being given their proper value in comparison to that which has the highest value above everything else in the universe. If we give Jesus the place in our minds and hearts that corresponds to His value, then nothing will come before Him. If we really believe He is “worthy” of this place, then why would we not spend time remembering Him and what He has done for God and for us?
The second point in this issue is whether we as the Church and believers really accept the place God has given to Jesus? “Therefore, God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name” (Philippians 2:9). If we want to give Jesus the same exalted place in our hearts, then remembering Him often will be our automatic desire and practice.
