Such regulations indeed have an appearance of wisdom, with their self-imposed worship, their false humility and their harsh treatment of the body, but they lack any value in restraining sensual indulgence.

– Colossians 2:23 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

The Bible is clear on the issue of walking in holiness—willpower is not enough. You can get up early, go to bed late, lock yourself in your room, live in a remote area—none of these will create a heart that loves God and hates sin. The only way that we can get to a life of holiness is to allow the gospel of Jesus Christ to saturate our thinking. The gospel IS the power of God. It will melt hard hearts and challenge wrong thinking. The gospel is our great hope.
