Hidden with Christ

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

Uche observed that he was still very much bound by the powers that enslaved him before he came out for the altar call to become born again. He could not understand why the promises the evangelist made were not being fulfilled in his life. The evangelist had promised that anyone who accepted Christ would be free from the bondage of darkness. But this was not the case with Uche. He started going from church to church, from vigil to prayer meetings, seeking spiritual liberty because he knew for sure that Jesus gives liberty.

He ended up in one church where the pastor asked to see him. This pastor, through prophecy, knew that Uche needed to see him in order to be free. After Uche had enumerated his ordeal, the pastor told him that he was still bound because he had not yet died to his old life. The only thing that changed in his life was that he was now going to church. He was still a liar, a cheat, a thief, and a fornicator.

Many believers claim the second part of today’s Bible verse while ignoring the first part. The reason why your life can be hidden in Christ is because you have died to the old life and awakened to the new life of Christ within you. The new life that now controls you can never be bound, but the old life controlled by the flesh ushers in demonic bondage.

Go into today remembering that you have new life in Christ Jesus if you have accepted Him as your Lord and Savior. Abide in Him and let His word abide in you.

Confession: I am dead to the old life of sin. The life that I now live is hidden in Christ in God. Jesus rules my life.
— Abraham Damilola Arigi
