27 May Spiritual Intimidation
The early church in Colosse had some real enemies to the work of God. And they were constantly trying to intimidate the new believers with “extra” rituals and requirements for the faith. The Apostle Paul however, was not going to let that happen, so he gave the church three warnings, that we must listen too, if we are going to enjoy our completeness in Christ, and not be intimidated, or discouraged in the faith.
Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
