For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God. And when Christ, who is your life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all his glory. Colossians 3:3-4
I used this verse to help my kids understand a kingdom truth, and they loved it. Just like an Easter egg from the hunt, our real life is hidden in Him, so that when Christ is revealed, we will be revealed with Him. We should be excited and looking forward to what we will see on that day, and because we are excited, we seek Him with the passion of an egg hunter. Have you ever seen 50 kids running back and forth looking for eggs!?!
Seek God with anticipation, knowing that someday we will get to experience our new life that is hidden in Him.
God, help me to seek You with excitement. Help me to remember my new life hidden in You and act accordingly. Thank You for the peace that comes from knowing my eternal life is safe in Your arms.
