Hidden in Christ

Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God.  And when Christ, who is your life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all his glory. 

colossians 3:1-4


Broken, Ignorant, Shameful
Suffering, Tempted, Sinner
This is me.

Holy, Blameless, Pure
Sinless, Spotless, Glorious
This is Christ.

Forgiven, Humbled, Thankful
Covered, Loving, Peaceful
This is Christ in me.

1 John 4:13 God has given us his Spirit. That is how we know that we are one with him, just as he is one with us.

  5. In my prayer time this week I have been trying to focus on Jesus, with the goal of having that focus permeate the rest of my day. Not asking, not telling, not “angsting”, but just looking at Jesus. several times during the course of this practice I have come back to this poem to re-focus on Him, Holy, blameless, pure, sinless, spotless, glorious.

    Thank you for sharing. It has blessed me.

  6. Scotti, that is powerful and very beautiful. Right now I truly relate. Blessings to you always in Jesus, and thank you for sharing what the Lord places in your heart.
