Hidden Life?

12 Jul
Although you may be a Christian, have you ever felt that
your life was missing something grand? Does your whole 
being cry out for more? Have you sensed that there is 
some unique thing that you should be doing that escapes
you?

In the stillness of a "must be more moment", I 
sensed a whisper that said "hidden with Christ" (Colossians
3:3) But what does that really mean? Did God hide the very 
thing that He sent His Son Jesus to die for; this thing called
life. Jesus said, "I came that you might have life, and have 
it more abundantly" (John 10:10). So if Jesus not only 
came that we might have life, and He even died so that we 
might have life, why is life hidden?

As Matthew Henry's commentary states "It is hid with Christ; 
not hid from us only, in point of secrecy, but hid for us, 
denoting security. The life of a Christian is hid with Christ".
Our lives are hidden, or secure with Christ.

But the question goes back to, how can we actually 
allow that abundant life that is hidden with Christ to 
be felt, experienced and expressed daily?  

Jesus Christ, the one with whom our lives are hidden, said 
that we are to "Love the Lord our God with all of our hearts, 
soul, mind, and strength and love our neighbor as ourselves"
(Luke 10:27).  

While this may not be the entire answer to our 
question of more, going back to the two greatest
commandments on which the whole law rests is 
a very good place to start in finding the "more"
that our hearts long for.

Love more! Focus upon seeking the Lord and loving
Him, as well as loving those people that have 
been placed within your circumference more. As we follow
these two commandments, we open our lives to
greater possiblities of abundant living for and with
Jesus Christ, with whom our lives are hidden and secure!
