Larry Wittmer gave the Communion Meditation over the Love Feast Sunday at Colony Christian Church.
Love Feast once was a term for the Lord’s Supper. There is no word for “feast” in Greek, so Jude just called it “Your Love.” We cannot earn love; Jesus’s sacrifice is a gift from God’s grace. Pastor Chase Riebel gave the sermon “Receiving the Gift.” The gift of grace is free and can’t be earned. We receive the gift of grace through faith, repentance, confession and immersion. God reveals himself through everything that he created, through our conscience, what Jesus revealed to us, etc. God is just, loving, sovereign, and never changing. Accept the gift today and live as free men and women.
Men’s Bible study is at 7 a.m. Tuesday, followed by Women’s Bible study at 8 o’clock. Adult Bible Study and Youth Group meet at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
