Wesley's Notes for Colossians 3:3

3:3 For ye are dead - To the things on earth. And your real, spiritual life is hid from the world, and laid up in God, with Christ - Who hath merited, promised, prepared it for us, and gives us the earnest and foretaste of it in our hearts.

People's Bible Notes for Colossians 3:3

Col 3:3 For ye are dead. "For ye died" (Revised Version). This is a reason for not loving earthly things. We died to the world, crucified with Christ, and were buried. See notes on 2:12 Ro 6:2 Ga 2:20. This death was a definite act, like the burial and the rising, not a state. The Revised Version is a great improvement on such passages. And your life is hid with Christ in God. They died, but they are not dead. Yet the world does not see their true life, the eternal principle within. Their life is in Christ, and can never be fully manifested until he shall be manifest.

  • Curtis
    Our purpose in life is meaningless without God 's provision of divine understanding and wisdom. What eternally will last in this life is what God does through us. How can God work in our lives unless we look to him first. His provision has an everlasting purpose. What we do in word or deed should reflect from God which eternally is love.
