Colossians 3:3



3 For [gar] ye are dead, [apothnesko] and [kai] your [humon] life [zoe] is hid [krupto] with [sun] Christ [Christos] in [en] God. [theos] KJV-Interlinear



3 For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. NASB



Because you have believed in Christ, then many things have occurred in your behalf, and two of them are mentioned here.


First, you have died to the world.That does not mean that you died a physical death, and are no longer living. Obviously that is not the case since you are still alive.But death here is a separation from something, and that something is sin and eternal death.


We are all going to die one day.Most folks will die in the usual way, when their heart stops and they leave their physical body and go off to heaven.Some folks will die, as it were, in the Rapture when it occurs. They will leave their physical bodies, when they are instantly transformed into their resurrection bodies.


But since we have believed in Christ, then we will not die a second time. That second death is reserved for unbelievers, or those who have refused, stubbornly, all of their life, to believe in Christ.


So, here we have been separated to the hold that sin and the second death, had over us.


Unbelievers are enslaved to sin.They cannot confess their sins and get them forgiven, because they have rejected Christ s work on the Cross.So they have no one to confess them to.So they are trapped.


But believers have a way out.Though we are physically alive, we still have to live in these sin-nature infested bodies, during our time here on the earth.And as such, we are susceptible to the whims of the sin nature.


But since we are saved, and since we have access to Gods provisions, then we can confess our sins and live a life within the fellowship sphere. And within that sphere, we are free from sin.


The fellowship sphere, is a defined environment where we may exist, positionally, by means of obedience to Gods command for confession. We do not feel anything, or sense anything, nor are we transported into some form of life dimension. It simply occurs because God recognizes the confession principle.


And second, because we are separated from sin, then we have life. But our life, which is eternal life, is hidden within the spiritual life, and accessed by means of faith in Christ.


Christ holds on to our eternal life.Christ is in heaven. Christ is seated at the right hand of God the Father.God the Father is the highest authority anywhere, from whom Christ inherits all things.


Since God is the ultimate power, and authority, and sovereign, and everything else, and since He has in His possession, our eternal life, and since it is in heaven, hidden as a treasure of infinite value is hidden, then our eternal life is secure.


Our eternal life is not in our possession, because humanity would lose it. We cannot give it to ourselves.


God possesses it, and keeps it for us, in heaven.And there, no one can find it, or steal it, or alter it, and certainly you cannot change it or lose it.


Our eternal life has the greatest security possible, and nothing, and no one, not even you, can change that.


Therefore, when you believed in Christ, you received a permanent and secure new position in Christ. You received access to an environment separated away and isolated from the power of sin, which will allow you to advance in your life, to a position of completeness.


And you received an eternal life which is resident in Christ and therefore totally secure.
