Praying from Colossians 2:17 relating to Shadow, Christ, Future Redemption.

Dear Lord, I thank you for the promise that the things we see in this world are only a shadow of the things to come. I claim this promise and trust that you have greater things in store for me. I also thank you for the gift of Christ’s body, which represents the ultimate sacrifice and love that you have for us. May I always remember this and live my life in a way that honors and glorifies you. Amen.

Verse: which are a shadow of the things to come; but the body is Christ’s.
Colossians 2:17

This is a Promise. The verse is stating that the Old Testament practices and rituals were a foreshadowing of Christ’s coming and his sacrifice for humanity.
