Colossians: Sometimes we take ourselves very seriously – which can lead to a blindness like being blind-sided. That is the kind of surprise no one wants. In verse 8 we are warned against getting caught up in the world’s philosophy – what we think of “the world”. Much of the remainder was to deal with circumcision. Circumcision in the Old Law was a sign of the covenant. That was done with hand of man but our circumcision is done by Christ and is that of the heart.
