Securely Hidden

Good Wednesday morning to you! Paul makes it clear in the first part of Colossians 3 that we should not desire earthly things. Instead, we should desire heavenly things. Why is this? It is because we are dead to the things of this world. Look at verse 3:

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

We have died to the things of this world, but have been raised to new life through the power of Jesus Christ. Now, we have been “hidden with Christ in God.” The idea here is of a treasure that is hidden for safe keeping. To your Heavenly Father, you are a treasure. Your life is securely and safely hidden. You don’t have to settle for being bound to the things of this world. If you are in Christ, you belong to Him and you are safely being held in Heaven with Him. Again, keep your eyes on Heaven and not on this world. This world and all of its troubles are merely temporary. Your life is with Jesus.
