Darren McGhee gave the communion meditation, “The Last Day of Your Life,” at Colony Christian Church Sunday. There’s a story about a Jewish rabbi who was dying. His students were asking him questions, and one of them asked him, “What day should a man repent?” His answer was, “The last day of your life.” We can’t predict when hard times come or when we’re caught in a sudden tragedy. Since we do not know the day of Jesus’ return, we should repent and turn away from our sin every single day.
Pastor Chase Riebel’s sermon was “God First. His Word is Our Authority.” God’s authority trumps all things. We need to read God’s word, study it, and listen to others when they speak on it. Also, some claim that it is flawed by man. The word of God is alive and powerful, it is infallible, and nothing is hidden from God. Don’t let your surroundings, or what is going on in your life be your authority. God and his word are directly meant for our good.
