3:4 When Christ - The abruptness of the sentence surrounds us with sudden light. Our life - The fountain of holiness and glory. Shall appear - In the clouds of heaven.

People's Bible Notes for Colossians 3:4

Col 3:4 When Christ, . . . shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. "When Christ . . . shall be manifested" (Revised Version), then the glory and the blessedness of the life in us shall be shown forth. Like the tree in the winter, not dead, but the life hidden. When the spring comes, its life shows itself in glory. Compare Ro 8:19.

Discussion for Colossians 3

  • I, even I, am that Michael Isaac Dale:
    Hear again O man, for as long as this heaven and earth remain, so will these wicked pervert the right ways of the LORD JESUS. And, for as long as Christ is in his flesh, so shall ye be in your flesh. And the woman whom GOD favours shall sleep until you repent of your own sins, giving place to faith. Thus, There is no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves.

    Colossians 3:12-17
  • HL BL
    "...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.
