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, 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. Colossians 2:18-19
Don’t you dare allow someone to defraud you of your prize. Jesus died to do away with this bondage, so never, for the sake of your eternal soul, allow anything any person falsley demands or proclaims push you away from your Savior.
Your life is not determined on what man says, but on what God says, and God says His people are washed in the blood of Christ, fully forgiven, circumcised with the circumcision made without hands. Keep your feet planted in that truth, be supplied by it, grow, and never let it go.
