Description

“Therefore let no one pass judgment on you in questions of food and drink, or with regard to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath. These are a shadow of the things to come, but the substance belongs to Christ. Let no one disqualify you, insisting on asceticism and worship of angels, going on in detail about visions, puffed up without reason by his sensuous mind, and not holding fast to the Head, from whom the whole body, nourished and knit together through its joints and ligaments, grows with a growth that is from God. If with Christ you died to the elemental spirits of the world, why, as if you were still alive in the world, do you submit to regulations—“Do not handle, Do not taste, Do not touch” (referring to things that all perish as they are used)—according to human precepts and teachings? These have indeed an appearance of wisdom in promoting self-made religion and asceticism and severity to the body, but they are of no value in stopping the indulgence of the flesh.” (Colossians 2:16-23 ESV)

 

1. What must I do to be saved? (v. 16-17)

     *The Lie of Legalism: I must do.

     *The Truth of Grace: It is done.

 

2. I don’t look or act like other Christians, am I saved? (v. 18-19)

     *The Lie of Legalism: All believers should look and act the same way.

     *The Truth of Grace: God finds joy in diversity.

 

3. What rules must I keep to remain saved? (v. 20-23)

      *The Lie of Legalism: God will love me more if I obey Him.

      *The Truth of Grace: I will obey God because I love Him, and He loves me.
