From the Bible this week: Colossians 2

This week I have been reading from Colossians in my quiet times (after listening to “I have hidden your Word in my heart“).

I have been really encouraged by chapter two as I have read through it.

When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.

Colossians 2:13-15

It is awesome to know that Jesus has dealt with our sins, and the punishment that we deserve will no longer fall upon us! We are ALIVE in Christ. And through Christ’s death, we no longer need to conform to regulations and rituals. This doesn’t mean that we don’t obey God any more. But it means that we can worship God with freedom! How exciting is that!?

We don’t need to be focussed on how good we are at obeying rules, we need to focus on Jesus, and what he has done for the world. Let’s keep living for him, and working to glorify God.
