Text: Colossians 2:16-23
“…and not holding fast to the Head, from whom the whole body, nourished and knit together through its joints and ligaments, grows with a growth that is from God.” This is a portion of verse 19 where we’re being warned about the types of people who might pull us astray. And I think certainly, certainly – let’s check. Is there anyone who might be judging you or trying to disqualify you based on things that are just not the center issue? Don’t let them. You know Who’s you are? You know who your Father is? They don’t want to pick a fight with you, and here’s why…
Can we just read over those words once again from verse 19? Let them marinate and soak in our heart.
Holding fast to the Head. (our loving Father)
From whom the whole body. (us and all our brothers + sisters)
Is nourished. (we’re fed, taken care of, all our needs met)
And knit together. (inextricably)
Growing with a growth that is from God. (not our power, not our growing, not our work. good news!)
Yes, let no one disqualify you or judge you.
And walk forward in the beautiful knowledge and truth of what it is to be His today.
