3For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
Our affections and heart will be drawn to something. The members of our body will be occupied by desires. For the believer in Christ Jesus the spiritual dynamics of our life are explained in aspects of life and of death.
Of death, the believer was dead in their sins.
Of death, the believer is now dead to sin.
This is not a renovation; Jesus has ushered us into a demolition.
But the demolition of the works of sin and death are animated from the interior occupation of the One who loved us and died for us, Jesus Christ the Lord.
Now our life is hidden with Christ, in God.
Hidden: Jesus the Crucified is enough to advocate for us.
Hidden: Jesus the Resurrected is enough to secure our life even in the face of ridicule, accusation, pressure, harassment, loss of wealth, or even death of the body from those who do not yet recognize Him or love Him as Lord.
Blessed are you!
Your life is hidden with Christ in God!
