Your Life is Hidden With Christ in God: Here's How to Find It

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

–Colossians 3:1-3, KJV

Are you looking for a life, a place to fit in? The good news is that you have a life hidden with Christ in God. 

You gained this life when you became Born Again. When you made Jesus your Lord and Savior, you became risen with Him. Colossians 3:1 from The Amplified Bible Classic Edition says you’ve been raised with Christ to a new life, sharing His resurrection from the dead.  

You are no longer of this world. You belong to a Heavenly Kingdom. The privileges of that Kingdom are now yours — healing, prosperity, wisdom, understanding, abundance in every way. God and His character live in you. You no longer have to be a slave to sin. You are a winner!

It could be that you feel left out in the cold, that there is no place for you to stand in this world because of the challenges you face. Maybe you are going through a divorce and feel depressed. Perhaps your kids aren’t acting right or you don’t have a job. None of this matters to God. He can bring you through your difficulties and fill you with joy. He can deliver your children and bless you with the best job you’ve ever had. God can lead you to that particular place He has called you to. He can show you your purpose in this world. 

Gaining access to this new life takes work. You must line up your thoughts, beliefs and actions with God. This is renewing the mind (Romans 12:2). Where you once let thoughts of defeat rule, you must now fill your mind with victory. You might have once questioned the Bible. Now you have to decide to believe what it says. The rewards for doing so are incredible. Who doesn’t want more joy and peace? Who doesn’t want things going well for them? That’s the benefit of the life you have in Christ.

 

Gaining access to this new life will take work. You must line up your thoughts, beliefs and actions with God.

 

I’ve already told you where to find this life. Let’s talk more about that. Your life can’t be found in what the news says or what your brother-in-law believes about the economy. It’s not in the salary you get from your job or your social status. Your life is hidden with Christ in God.

Jesus is the Word of God (John 1:1). You can discover who you are, why you are here, where you are going, what you have in Christ and who you are in Christ by digging into His Word.

As you find out the riches of the glory of your inheritance (Ephesians 1:18), and set yourself in agreement, over time, your life will change. It will get better. You will see more clearly what Jesus did for you on the cross, how much He loves you and longs to be good to you. 

Love,

Karin
