Communion from LBCF 30:8 – without being in great sin against Him
This month is bitter sweet. My wife and I have only four Lord’s Days / weeks left at our little church. We will miss them greatly, and this important chapter of our lives. But we’re excited about where He might lead us next. We are taking a leap of faith, and are uncertain how that might come to fruition.
Since we have communion weekly, I strive to make sure they are not presented in a rubber stamp format. Hence, as I gleam from the Scriptures, I also use church historical creeds, confessions, and catechisms.

Over the past ten months, we’ve visited over 10 churches in the #BibleBelt, and are thankful for the experience. One church we remained for two months, and another church for three.
Out of all those churches, and all those Lord’s Days, not one practiced the command to participate in communion, not even once. One pastor told me they host communion only “twice a year.”
The two ordinances of the Lord’s church, baptism, and communion, are not suggestions, they are commandments. Though it is reasonably possible to be providentially hindered from new baptisms. It is unreasonable and sinful for the local church to intentionally neglect the sacrament of communion, as Jesus commanded “Do this often in remembrance of Me!”
Thankfully, today we visited a church that did, and they do so every month. Lord, forgive Me as I repent, and hold this cup with trembling hands.
