170113See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the universe, and not according to Christ. For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily,  and you have come to fullness in him, who is the head of every ruler and authority. In him also you were circumcised with a spiritual circumcision, by putting off the body of the flesh in the circumcision of Christ; when you were buried with him in baptism, you were also raised with him through faith in the power of God, who raised him from the dead. And when you were dead in trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive together with him, when he forgave us all our trespasses, erasing the record that stood against us with its legal demands. He set this aside, nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and made a public example of them, triumphing over them in it. (Colossians 2:8-15, NRSV)

Do not let anyone take you away from where God has brought you.

Do not allow through philosophy, wit, empty deceit, or any method allow anyone allow your heart to be moved from the place God put it in your circumcision.

We were raised with God, and now need to follow where He is leading us. Put off all desires and follow where God is leading you.

He alone has given you abundance of life, so look to Him. And allow the one who gave you life to give you the abundant life He planned for you!
