01 May Colossians 2:16-19
16 Therefore no one is to act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day— 17 things which are a mere shadow of what is to come; but the substance belongs to Christ. 18 Let no one keep defrauding you of your prize by delighting in self-abasement and the worship of the angels, taking his stand on visions he has seen, inflated without cause by his fleshly mind, 19 and not holding fast to the head, from whom the entire body, being supplied and held together by the joints and ligaments, grows with a growth which is from God.
Man-made religion is shallow, where Christianity is profound. If a religion denies Jesus as the head of His church, then they take from Him His body; the community of believers who exist to make disciples who make disciples. There are 3 cornerstones to Christianity and they are; The Trinity, the deity of Christ, and the blood atonement. Man-made religion denies all three of these. Every Saturday and Sunday millions of Witnesses and Mormons come together and deny the Trinity, then offer a shallow understanding of the character of God. If you can understand God, He is not the God of the Scriptures. The depth of the nature of God transcends human understanding. For years, many religions in America have denied God and Christ. They say that Jesus is just a man. WE need a God who is so great He can’t be described in words. We come before Him in awe, worshiping the Father through the Son in the Holy Spirit. Then, we devote our lives to learning of Him. Have you ever meditated on how big God is? Have you ever compared your weakness to His strength? You should want to devote your best to Him.
