Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 1 If then you are risen with Christ, seek those things that are above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God.1 [From the Word of the Lord within: "Christ is actually resurrected in every person that comes to Him and obeys Him repetitively. With persistent and faithful obedience, you too will be raised. You have not experienced grace until you have been raised with Him."]

 2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

 3 For you are dead, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.2

2 When Christ is resurrected in you, no one will be able to see him. The Jews didn't recognize Christ; they killed him. They cut James' head off. They stoned Stephen. Christ is not recognized, except by his fruits; you will know them by their fruits. And the fruit of the spirit is: love, joy, peace (quietness and confident trust forever), patience (including longsuffering, steadfastness, and perseverance), kindness (including morality and integrity), goodness, faith, gentleness (including meekness and humility), and self-control (mastery of sensual appetites, passions, and desires). Gal 5:22-23.
