By Don Ruhl

You have a reward coming from God Himself. What kind of reward that must be! Do you want anyone to cheat you out of that reward? If not, listen to this,

Let no one cheat you of your reward, taking delight in false humility and worship of angels, intruding into those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, and not holding fast to the Head, from whom all the body, nourished and knit together by joints and ligaments, grows with the increase that is from God (Colossians 2.18–19). 

You will lose your reward, if you follow someone who teaches you to delight in false humility, to worship angels, to be puffed up because of something about your flesh, and does not teach you to hold fast to the Head, who is Jesus Christ. If you want to grow in God, follow Jesus.


  • Do you have a tendency to believe whatever someone tells you?
  • Do you back all things with Scripture?
