These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ. (NIV)
Our first and foremost priority in life should be a right relationship with Jesus Christ. The difficult work has already been accomplished by Christ. Our part is to accept God’s gift of grace, believe and obey.
Don’t let anyone discourage you or be fooled by outward appearance and don’t rely on the religious traditions of people. In verse 16 of Colossians the religious festivals referenced were the ones practised by the Hebrew people. These festivals were instituted by God to bring the people’s attention to the eternal unblemished lamb Jesus Christ.
Pray that Jesus will assist you through the Holy Spirit to develop a faithful relationship with Him.
Preparing for the soon return of Jesus Christ, praise our Lord,
