Colossians 3:1 Raised with Christ

If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Colossians 3:1

This verse helps Christians to know a few things about Jesus (the Son); God (the Father); where the Christian stands in relation to Jesus; and what the Christian ought to be focused on in his or her daily walk.

If then you were raised with Christ” We are Christians if we have been born again. If that is so, then we have been raised with Christ. We are no longer dead but alive because we have accepted Jesus as Lord and Saviour of our life. We now understand the things of the Lord because the Holy Spirit lives in us.

seek those things which are above,” So what do we do now? We need to seek those things which are above. Christians, are called to action not laziness. We are to seek God not only one time per week, on Sunday for example, but every single day of the rest of our life here on earth. 

Pretty crazy, huh? I say pretty awesome! To seek Him, apply the basics then He will lead you from there. The basics are: prayer, reading the Bible and applying it without compromise.

where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God” Two of the three that we have come to know as the trinity are mentioned here: Jesus Christ the Son and God the Father. And, Jesus sits at the right hand of God in heaven. This provides hope to the Christian because we know that Jesus, although He was crucified, is truly not dead but alive and we are to be raised with Him.

May the Lord God Almighty bless you this awesome and great day He has made. Keep praying, reading and applying His word.
