Points to Ponder week of 10/31
It is hard not to be captured by religious practices. It is hard because sometimes they really can serve us spiritually, but they can also fill a subtle human desire to feel or look spiritually significant. In the rest of Colossians chapter 2, Paul slices right through all of this again with Jesus Christ. All of our thinking, decisions, and attitudes must be according to Christ. Let us walk in Him continually. Be captive to Him, not human thinking or practices. We have a life defined not by human wisdom but by His power at work in and through us. His power triumphs over the pressure to perform or give appearances. We’ll talk about it more on Sunday!
