FOCAL TEXT: Colossians 2 vs 16►► “ Let no man, therefore, judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:~| KJV|______________________________________
FAVOURED greetings, Cherished one. One of the major reasons behind dietary restrictions in the Old Testament was uncleanliness. In the case of Apostle Peter’s vision, He saw killing and eating certain animals as unclean. He said “Not so, Lord! I have never eaten anything common or unclean.” (Acts 10:14) Peter was a Jew and adhered to their ceremonial laws. And the law of Moses declared certain animals as unclean (Leviticus 11:2ff).
This is what our focal text admonishes; that let no one judge you in the area of meat (food) or drink as this is clean and this is unclean because God is the best judge (Romans 14:3). “And a voice spoke to him again the second time, “What God has cleansed you must not call common” (Acts 10:15). Christ has abolished those restrictions so they are no more effective or have any influence on your salvation.
Beloved, your “cleansing” in the New Testament has nothing to do with the meat you eat or the drink. You are cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ irrespective of your culture of dietary laws. No meat can defile your salvation in Christ. In fact, Jesus made it clear that a person is not defiled by what enters into him (Matthew 15:11). Accept no restrictions on your Christian faith through human philosophies and legalism. You are saved, sound and secured in Christ irrespective of dietary laws. The rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ abounds towards you always.
I am washed, cleansed and sanctified by the precious blood of Jesus Christ. I am presented blameless, holy without spotless before God by the blood. I enjoy my liberty in Christ and accept no restriction against this freedom in Jesus Name. Amen!
Pray and thank God for cleansing you by the precious blood of the Lamb.
You are not safe until you are saved. Believe in Jesus Christ Now, if you haven’t.
