Colossians 2:23 Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.
When we got saved we died with and in the Lord Jesus. We died to all the world’s way of doing things. So Paul asks the questions, Why if you are dead to all of it, are you still so worried about following rules. Why are you still doing it like human beings do it instead of God’s way.
It might appear real spiritual to always be following rules, treating your body hard, and making your own life pretty miserable but it is all of no real value. Doesn’t even help you stop the flesh in what it is doing and wants to do.
So why don’t we set our affection on things above and not on things on this earth. Let’s seek Christ and quit focusing on thinking that we can better ourselves.
