July 27: Hidden in Christ

Your life is hidden with Christ in God.
Colossians 3:3

No one has ever seen themselves. To see yourself, you need to look away from yourself into a mirror.

Similarly, because you are hidden in Christ, the only way to truly know yourself is to find yourself in Christ.

Since you are hidden in Christ, God sees you as you really are—hidden in Christ. This means the Father overlooks your flaws, weaknesses, sins and imperfections, because you are hidden in His Son.

“In Christ”—what a glorious reality!

Father God, I praise You that I am hidden in Christ, that You do not treat me as my sins deserve, but I am covered, hidden, in Your precious Son.

This daily Christ-encountering, fire-starter is not intended to replace your daily Bible reading and prayer time, but rather to motivate you to spend extended time in His presence.
