Colossians 3:1-11. Outward religiosity, attempts at self-mortification, displays of false humility--these are all natural reactions of being insecure on where you stand with Jesus. Your perspective can either stem from fear or it can come from the absolute safety of resting in the arms of Christ. Here, the Apostle wants the Colossians to see that growth in holiness comes from gratitude for all Christ has accomplished and not from a sense of guilt.
