Legalism --Bible study notes on Col2

This chapter to me is like the prodigal son, he can be told to stay home and do all the right things, he can act like his older brother, with the religious outfit but hiding the sin inside. But at the end of the mess, he's convicted, and he wanted to do all the right things without being told. Maybe that's the difference of living under the law and living in the Spirit? Sometimes I think God created man not so that he will not sin, but he has a free choice to sin, but then also have a choice to come back in the spirit. He doesn't want the man that didn't sin, but He wants the man that sins, but comes back through Christ. What the law does is like a father who overprotect the son and wouldn't let the son leave home. And if the prodigal son doesn't have enough freedom to leave home, he'd never discover the truth and weight of sin, and he'd never repent, and the sin stays within him, and the father doesn't have a returned prodigal son. I think God rejoices in the returned prodigal son that wants to do all things right himself rather than a son that's been bound and told to do right. Maybe that's why He hates the pharasees so much because they robbed Him of the joy of returned prodigal sons.
