Gems from Colossians

“…To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily…” (Col. 1:29)
.
.
Let us strive ACCORDING TO HIS WORKING WHICH WORKS IN US MIGHTILY.
.
.
“Therefore, if you died with Christ from the basic principles of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to regulations – “Do not touch, do not taste, do not handle,” which all concern things which perish with the using – according to the commandments and doctrines of men? These things indeed have an appearance of wisdom in self-imposed religion, false humility, and neglect of the body, but are of no value against the indulgence of the flesh.” (Col. 2:20-23)
.
.
(Note: SELF-IMPOSED RELIGION, which is powered by FALSE HUMILITY – advertising your “humility”:  “I know he is so humble because he told me!” )
.
(So much stuff is SELF-IMPOSED,  God never imposed it)
.
.
“…Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving…” (Col. 4:2)
