Bet you can guess what my lesson was about today. Food is not the reason that I'm overweight. I'm overweight because I like to over indulge! That and I don't like to exercise. Basically, I lack self-control in those areas. I'm allowing my Lord to teach me self-control.
The passage that grabbed me from today's study in "The Lord's Table" is, "The Christian life is not about legalistically following a set of rules, conforming to a man-made religion, or denying ourselves certain kinds of foods. It is about being full of Christ and enjoying Him."
"Since you died with
Christ to the basic principles of this world, why, as though you still
belonged to it, do you submit to its rules: 'Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!'? These are all destined to perish with use, because they are based on human commands and teachings.
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 2:20-23
