It's not weird to think outside of the box...no really! Making communion part of your family experience can become a beautiful tradition.

Why Family Communion Could be a New Tradition

Eating the Lamb of God series, Part 2

Jesus represents the Passover Lamb in this series on the Lord's Supper. Communion is more than just a nibble of bread and a sip of wine. Go symbolically deep with me y’all.

 

Weakness, sickness, falling sleep…from mishandling the Lord’s supper?  Seriously?

27 So then, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. 28 Everyone ought to examine themselves before they eat of the bread and drink from the cup. 29 For those who eat and drink without discerning the body of Christ eat and drink judgment on themselves. 30 That is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep. 1 Corinthians 11:27-30 (NIV)

“That is why” is cause and effect wording…in essence saying, “You do this, and this will happen.”  It WILL happen.

Okay y’all, this is getting too negative.  Let’s look at the opposite of this statement.  Eating the Lord’s Supper in a worthy manner should also have a cause and effect that we should rejoice in… strength not weakness, health not sickness, life not death.  Qualities we should emphasis personally and in our families.

Strength:

Health:

Life:

And another thing, y’all…why couldn’t you celebrate the Lord’s Supper at your house, with your family on certain occasions?   The church is not just a denomination or a building as culture seems to think, people are the church…your family is the church.  Why couldn’t you create special moments with our Lord…times that your children would never forget?  Take Christmas for instance.  Why not celebrate His birth, then celebrate His death with a family communion time.   Birthdays, anniversaries, a new job, cancer diagnosis, cancer remission, retirement….any day, would be an awesome time to celebrate the Lord’s death until He returns.  My husband and I ate the Lord’s Supper together in our hotel room after our wedding.  It is a beautiful memory.  Wouldn’t it be a perfect family tradition…remembering the Lord together and promoting a strong spiritual life within your home?
