12/23/18 – Choosing Substance Over Shadow This Christmas

Colossians 2:16-17

16Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

2 Big Pictures Thoughts From Colossians This Christmas

  1. Life and Christmas are full of shadows that are meant to point us to the substance of life and Christmas, Jesus Christ.
  2. Christ casts His shadow all over Christmas where we are reminded of the Gospel and love of God as we ponder that we could not get to God, so God came to us, for us, to save us.

Next Steps:

  1. See the Gospel story in old traditions.
  2. Start new traditions.
  3. See Christmas through the rearview mirror and the windshield.
