Cary Cox, from Romans 4:13-17. Paul explains the difference between trying to earn God’s blessing by our efforts, and simply trusting God to do what he has promised. Faith looks away from self and believes the Lord!
Cary Cox, from Colossians 2:16-23. Paul blasts the empty legalism and mystical experiences of the false teachers in Colossae. They are pressuring the believers and judging them as inferior, but Paul exposes their Christ-less teachings and calls the church to continue to hold to Christ.
