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.

    Colossians 3vs1 teaches us to live a christlike way which Jesus demonstrated as in Galations 5vs22 as Jesus died and rose from the dead for our redemption, so we became new creatures, behold old things became new. Therefore we need to lay our treasures in heaven where moth and rust will not destroy ,for where your treasure is your heart will be also, Matthew 6vs19-21 says.

    Children are the blessings from God. My child is the fruit of my womb. Thank you Jesus for giving me this miracle blessing. I truly believe your prophecy on me Praised God and thank you Jesus for the blood. Meditating God's words and obedience to his words are more important than sacrifice. As parents its our responsibility to teach our child the word of God so that they will be bless in the land
