Colossians: Freedom from Human Rules


Colossians: Freedom from Human Rules
Colossians 2:16-23  

The writer of Colossians is going to give us snapshots into what living a life in Jesus looks like.  It can be summarized by his words ‘Set your hearts and minds on things above.” And then goes into some detail about ‘spiritual fullness in Christ’, ‘being free from human rules’, ‘living as those made alive in Christ’, and ‘implications for relationships.’  

Sunday we take a closer look at Paul’s teaching about ‘being free from human rules.’  Are you into superstitions or engage in the practice of regular traditions?  Are you a rule keeper?  Or are you more of a rule breaker? 

When it comes to being alive in Christ, how do we discern the value, need, or detriment of rules and traditions?  Well it all depends on your posture.  

At the plate for Sunday: Freedom from Human Rules (Colossians 2:16-3:2.)  On deck for 6/4: Implications for Christian Households and Relationships (Colossians 3:18-4:1).  In the hole for 6/11: Living as Those Made Alive in Christ (Colossians 3:1-17)

Walk humbly with God and see you Sunday,
