Mere the Shadows of Things to Come

Colossians 2:16 – 3:2

Staying Focused on Jesus
v.16 - Therefore no one is to act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day.
We’re encouraged to be a thinking church: Setting our minds on the things above, not below; engaging with the principles of Jesus; staying focused on Him, thereby being built-up in Him. Knowing His thoughts and commandments for us (as revealed in the Bible) enables us to see, hear, and understand life with His perspective and truths in mind, so we don’t come under earthly judgments rooted in the traditions, philosophies, visions or the wisdom of man.
