#4915 – Hidden in Christ

Good morning people who are born again and filled with the Spirit of God.

Colossians 3:3 NIV For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.

Dead to sin and alive to Christ – this is what we are!

Yes, we must first die, but death is not the final word! It is not our final state! It is not our final condition!

Our life – that’s right, our resurrection and eternal life – is now hidden with Christ in God!

We are born again of God’s incorruptible seed! We are His sons and daughters! We are His heirs and co-heirs with Christ!

We are seated with Him in heavenly places! We are kings and priests! We are victorious and overcomers!

As Jesus was on this earth, so are we on this earth! We are called to walk as He walked and live as He lived!

The same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead now lives in us! He empowers us! He leads us! He restores us! He transforms us!

Oh glory be to God our Father and to the Lord Jesus Christ!

This is now our spiritual reality! This is our living hope! This is our rightful position and our legal inheritance!

This is who we are – hidden with Christ in God!
