As we continue this 6 week series in the book of Colossians, we are going to learn how to Resurrect Hope from our puffed up wreck. The Apostle Paul will teach us how a renewed relationship with Jesus Christ will help us overcome discouragement and despair to live with Hope in a hopeless world.
Today we are going to focus on receiving hope from legalism which is man made rules applied in a spiritual sense. Often legalism has lead Christians away from the faith and from having faith, but it’s important to remember that the Holy Spirit does a much better job at telling us what we should or should not do, over what men try to do.
And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. Colossians 2:13-14
