Larry Wittmer gave the communion meditation over messianic prophecies in the Old Testament. According to them, the messiah would be a man born of a woman, yet eternal. He would be exalted, yet scarred. He would be a servant, yet a king. He suffered for our sins, yet will return to reign over the earth. (Ref: Isaiah 9, 52-53)
Pastor Chase Riebel gave the sermon on “Resurrection Power.” There are seven truths to the resurrection: it proved Jesus was Christ; faith is useless if Jesus is not Christ; Jesus brings eternal life; eternal life is for the body; all living bodies will be transformed; death is without power; and to attain these fruits, one must believe. (Ref: 1 Corinthians 15; John 21; Acts 1:3; Romans 5:10; 1 John 3:2; Isaiah 25:8; Hosea 13:14; Revelation 22:12) Check out more sermons on our website at colonychristianchurch.org.
