Colossians 2:16-23

Do you know a rule-follower? You know, the person who waits patiently on the curb for the crosswalk light to change even though there is no traffic for blocks. They like deadlines, schedules, and step-by-step instructions. They make sure they leave a public area cleaner than when they found it, even picking up other people’s trash. They just can’t help themselves.

Paul points out that simply following rules will not make us right in God’s eyes. Christ, and knowing the reality of His salvation, is what sets the foundation to our understanding of how to live holy and worship-filled lives.

Human rules, based on human teaching, are temporary. They have the appearance of wisdom, but lack any value. Only Jesus can make us right with God. When we are right with God, unrestrictive worship happens. True worship in Spirit and in Truth happens when we are fully engaged with God.

Serving becomes a natural extension of everything we do.
