A Meditation on Colossians 3:4

Colossians 3:4 (ESV) 4 When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

Oh how easy it is for me to say “I am my own life” – So quickly to think MY life is about ME. Yet God, your word calls and sings to the soul a different tune. Christ, is your life.
  • All that is good about me is Christ.
  • All that satisfies and brings forth anything of value in me is Christ.
  • All that I long for and desire is found in Christ
  • All my incompletion finds completeness in Christ
  • All my brokenness and sin finds redemption in Christ
  • All my impatience finds rest in Christ
Yet I make the feeble attempt to make my life MINE. And I reap the fruits of fret, worry, anxiety, fearfulness, and despair. O silly man, you have been given life, decrease so that he might increase. Allow Him to be all so that you receive your all. When will you stop striving against your own joy and allow the ever joyful, ever full, ever beautiful, every satisfying Christ be your Life. He will appear, and then, I will also appear with him in glory. What hope above all hopes…
