2:16 Therefore - Seeing these things are so. Let none judge you - That is, regard none who judge you. In meat or drink - For not observing the ceremonial law in these or any other particulars. Or in respect of a yearly feast, the new moon, or the weekly Jewish sabbaths.


People's Bible Notes for Colossians 2:16


Col 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you. As the law was nailed to the cross (Col 2:14), let no man compel you to keep its ordinances. In meat, or in drink. By requiring you to eat only what the Jewish law prescribes (Le 7:10-27). See Ro 14:17 1Co 8:8 Heb 9:10. Compare 1Ti 4:3. Or in respect of an feast day. Such as the Passover, Pentecost, etc. Or of the new moon. The monthly observances (Nu 28:11). Or of the sabbaths. The Jewish Sabbath had passed away with the law.

    When we are tempted and under attack from the fiery darts of the enemy we must remember to walk in Christ always, when we have Christ in mind we notice these things happening so put on the full armour of God and walk with him. Surrender yourself to the Lord, don't lean on your own understanding and take up your cross. Hallelujah!
