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 3:1 if you then be risen with CHRIST seek those things which are above where CHRIST sitteth on the right hand of GOD --3:2-- set your affection on things above not on things on the earth --3:3-- for you are dead and your life is hid with CHRIST in GOD --3:4 when CHRIST who is our life shall appear then shall you also appear with HIM in glory

    "...above all these things put on charity,3:14" "Charity...beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth." 1Cor.13:4-8; "3:14 ...the bond of perfectness", capsules the essence of The Godhead and the Word; God is Love. Love sent His Son to Calvary that we may have eternal life, because of this Love came the Comforter--the Spirit of Truth.

    God gave me Col. 3 a few years back. While walking and talking to God He brought up Col. 3. I broke down crying because I was very depressed and needed strengeth and encouragement. Because of God's grace, love and mercy I'm still here. I think, meditate and apply Col. 3 nearly every day since that time. All because of the power of the Holy Spirit am I able to live the Christian life. Praise God ..

    Christ died for us and if we want to we can invite Him into out hearts for salvation. Someone of us ride in our cars to church. Some have to walk and others hitch a ride with someone. We are all going to the same place church. So maybe our comfort zone has been invaded and the hairs on our neck stands up. But if itt's only a change of sound and not doctrine we need to thank God others are coming.
