Colossians 3:2-4 (NET) Keep thinking about things above, not things on the earth, for you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ (who is your life) appears, then you too will be revealed in glory with him.
After Laura had her four children, she was almost inundated by the responsibilities of being a mother and a wife. Her life now practically revolved around her family, especially her children. She left her job, putting her career and ambitions on hold just to take care of the children and homeschool them. Those children were practically her life for the first few years of their lives.
Many of us had dreams and ambitions that we believed would land us in a place of glory and praise before men in this world. It is truly difficult for a person with plausible ambitions to receive the truth that he should die to his own ambitions and focus on the vision the Lord has for him. Many times, they may not be mutually exclusive, but there are times that they are. When you receive Christ as Lord and Savior, He practically becomes your life. You now live to please Him and not yourself. You are dead to your old life and now live to please Him alone (see Galatians 2:20).
We see in today’s Bible verse that when Christ (who is our life) appears, then we too will be revealed in glory with Him. For now, we have died to all our ambitions for earthly glory and are focused on fulfilling the purpose of Christ which is far better. Being popular or rich in this present world is not our priority (even though some of us will be entrusted with these things as part of the tools needed to execute our peculiar assessments), but serving God and fulfilling His plan is. When the Lord returns to take over the governments of this world and rule for a thousand years, those of us who lived for him would reign with him. The least among us would be wealthier and greater than the wealthiest people this present world system has produced. We would literally inherit the earth (Matthew 5:5).
Go into today remembering that if Christ is your life now, you will rule and reign with Him in his eternal kingdom. Leaving your own life and living for Christ is the only way to live in the kingdom(2 Tim 2:12, Rom 8:17, 1 Pet 4:13, Rev 5:10).
