Yesterday our Pastor, Tim Howey, continued through the book of Colossians. Week 4 brought us through the topic of legalism. The one thought that God taught me yesterday was to always remain graceful to those who may be blinded by the veil of legalism.
He covered everything from shorts to coullates (SP?) rock beats to back masking, and moving lights to haze machines. Seriously...it was a powerful message. I believe everyone in that room walked out thinking about the things that they are legalistic about. We all have our own rules and regulations which make us judgemental of others whether we believe it or not. If you're a jeans wearing church goer...you know you've looked at those new people coming in at least once and thought "those poor souls, why don't they just understand that they can be comfortable in the liberty of Christ like me and wear cool jeans?".
Tim didn't just tell you what the Bible says about this topic, he also told his own personal story of dealing with this issue in his life. It's worth a listen if you've been down this road or know someone who has.
