Don’t be judged by your religiousness (16,17) in their case, Jewish religious festivals which ignored or excluded the reality of Christ and his work on the Cross
Don’t Let Anyone Count You Out (18,19): Paul says don’t let anyone disqualify you because of your seemingly inferior religious experience. Christ is the source of real spiritual experience and real spiritual life and growth happens together in the body (the Church)
Don’t Fall in the Trap of Just Keeping Rules (20-23): Our Way of life does matter but it’s now how we get saved. Any rules must flow from Christ his word and must be motivated by love
