Christ Is Your Life - Colossians 3:4

Colossians 3:4 -- "And when Christ, who is your life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all his glory."

As Christians, we think a lot about how Christ saved us from eternal damnation. It is one core belief of Christianity, that when we die we will go and live for eternity with our Heavenly Father. It is important to know this truth, but it doesn't stop there.

Christ did save us, He covered our sins so that we could be clean to enter into a relationship with God. But it doesn't begin when we die. God wants our relationship to begin now, while we are still on earth.

When we enter into a relationship with Jesus Christ, when He covers our sins, He also enters our hearts. Colossians 3:11 puts it this way, "Christ is all that matters, and He lives in all of us." Christ does not only save us in death, He saves us is life. We can have joy and peace. We can be kind and gentle. We can have self-control and goodness even when we can't find it in the world.

"Christ, who is your life," means that no matter where you go or what you do, you have a Savior looking out for you. He protects us when we die, but He also shows us how to live and live to the fullest.

Have you entered into a relationship with Christ that focuses on life and not only on death. Seek out the Savior who will not only help you when trouble happens, but will walk with you daily to fulfill all of your needs. He will grant you not only a life, but a life worth living.
