Dead And Hidden In Christ


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



Christians do not need to fear and plead for their own cause.

They are dead in Christ.

Their lives are hidden with Christ in God.

*******

But unbelievers are in danger.

They are dead in their sins.

They are not spared from eternal destruction.

*******

As Christians, we are to pray for unbelievers among us.

God had forgiven our sins in the past.

We are to pray for unbelievers that God may not let them perish in their sins but bring them into Himself.

*******

The fact that Christians are dead and hidden in Christ should make them bold to proclaim the gospel truth even in fearful situations.

Oh Lord,
Help me to trust You in times of fear and challenge.
Allow Your Spirit to take control of every situation.
