Colossians Chapter 3 verses 1-4 Amplified Bible
Verse 1: Therefore, if (some versions read since) you have been raised with Christ [to a new life, sharing in His resurrection from the dead], keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
Verse 2: Set your mind and keep focused habitually on the things above [the heavenly things], not on things that are on the earth [which have only temporal value].
Verse 3: You died [to this world], and your [new, real] life is hidden with Christ in God.
Verse 4: When Christ, who is our life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
New Life Questions!
How has the eternal reality invaded your temporal reality?
What difference has it made in the lives of others in your life?
How do you reconcile or apply verse two to your everyday walking-around life?
Describe this in your life.
Do you consider yourself both dead and alive?
How does this play out in your life in circumstances and relationships?
How is your life different when you realize that Christ is your life and that it is no longer you who lives?
Lord, how beautiful is Your death and resurrection! And so is ours. Thank you for living Your life through us to Your glory! Amen
