Message, Pastor Mike Halstead
In this second chapter of Colossians Paul gives a sharp warning
to those who place their faith in anything that is not Christ.
I. Placing Our Faith In “The Shadow” Of Things
– Food, drink, celebration, sabbath
Hebrews 8:5a, & 10:1
II.Seeking Esteem In Our Own Wisdom & Righteousness
– Delighting in False Humility
– Gnosticism & the worship of other spirit beings
– Puffed up with idle notions vs 18 & Romans 12:3
– A lost connection with _____________
III. Religious Asceticism
Colossians 2:20-23 Such regulations indeed have an appearance of wisdom, with their self-imposed worship, their false humility, and their harsh treatment of the body, but they lack any value in restraining sensual indulgence
– Have we overemphasized things that are not necessarily biblical?
– Have we devalued other Christians that don’t share our convictions?
– Do we take pride in our own perceived holiness,. . or sacrifice, . .or wisdom?
Song- “Gracefully Broken”
