As we look this Morning at the last section of Colossians two (vs. 16-23), Paul warns us of a most sinister type of enemy that can rob us of the deep joy and peace that is ours in Christ. Rather then enemies that are inherently bad, these enemies of our faith act like a spiritual vaccine, inoculating the heart. These enemies are insidious, giving us a false sense that all is well, like the warmth felt by a man freezing to death. Rather then a sign of life, it is illusion, designed to blind the heart and fool the mind. The good news? The same victorious theme woven throughout the versus of Colossians---Jesus. I encourage you to read Colossians daily during this series and dwell on the truth that our peace and joy in life is directly proportionate to the extent our faith can grasp the full measure of God’s grace through Jesus.
