Hidden In Christ

 

We have the theme of a prism this year. It’s how Jesus shines through us in so many ways and colors. It all begins with our perception of who we are in Christ and then renewing our minds according to who we are in Christ. Look at these verses in Colossians. “1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:1-3 NKJV).

Look at your position in Christ—raised with Christ, died in Christ, and hidden in Christ. You identity is found in Christ. That’s where everything you do and say begins. It means a whole renewal of your mind, which God didn’t reset at your new creation in Christ. Your mind still thinks the way it always did and now you have to reconstruct the mind, tossing out the old and replacing it with the new. First, we have to put it in our heart, and second, we set our minds on things above.
