What are You Celebrating this Sunday?

Are you ready to celebrate? This Sunday is Pentecost, a fantastic time to celebrate some of God’s best gifts to us: the Scriptures and the Spirit. You can have a super-simple celebration, or you can create something elaborate.

Here are a few ideas that you can easily adapt for your home.  Although the suggestions are simple, they are able to communicate profound truth. If you’d like to read more about celebrating Pentecost, you can also go to this link, which will provide further background and additional ideas: celebrating Pentecost.

Here are several easy-to-implement ideas:

1.  Celebrate the incredible gift of the Scriptures by eating foods that symbolize the Word of God: bread, milk, and honey. Read corresponding Scriptures, such as Matthew 4:4, 1 Peter 2:2, Psalm 19:10-11, and Psalm 119:92, and 103. Emphasize the spiritual nourishment, strength, and sweetness that God gives us through Scripture.

Use symbols of light, such as a candle or a flashlight, to represent the guidance and comfort that we gain through Scripture. Read Psalm 119:105. (All of Psalm 119 is a rich celebration of the Scriptures.)

2.  Celebrate the amazing gift of the Holy Spirit to God’s people by eating foods that have been fried in oil, which symbolizes the Spirit.

Light an oil lamp. Talk about the need to refill the lamp and our need to be filled continually with the Spirit (Ephesians 5:18).

3. Celebrate Pentecost as the birthday of the Church! (You can read about it in Acts 2.) With cake and candles, thank God for His Church, which is made up of all believers in Christ. It would also be a great time to take a minute to pray for the Church.

I would love to hear about your Pentecost celebrations, and I invite you to share your thoughts and ideas here.

Happy Pentecost!
