Pastor Evan shares on the letter written from Paul to the early church in Colossae. They were this messy group of people from all walks of life, just like us. In this place they began to learn the expanse of God. The jewish law was about connecting with God with a system of rules and regulations. We do this today in church too through our own traditions and perspectives we bring in. As humans, we like to earn what we have and the law made that possible. Paul reminds us there isn't anything you can do earn your salvation: it's a gift. It might have felt like moving from the comfort of a large system, like a cruise ship to a raft. You have to put your faith in Jesus. You have to trust the raft is more sturdy and sound and will take you places that you could never go in a cruise ship. And Jesus will lead that raft because Jesus is on that raft too.
