Colossians 3:3,4 - "for you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God...Christ, who is your life."
It requires time and thought to grasp the truth that the life Christ lives in the Father is the same life He lives in us. Christ does not live one life in the Father and another in you. His explicit words are, "Because I live, you also will live. On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you" (John 14:19,20). As Christ is in the Father, so you are in Christ and Christ is in you.
We need daily quiet time with prayerful meditation to become deeply impressed with the truth that the Lord Jesus, whose life is hidden in God, also has His life hidden in us.
If we allow the Spirit of God to daily keep alive in us this heavenly life in Christ, we shall then know what it is to be able to testify to having died in Christ that we might experience His very own heavenly life. Then we shall enjoy a walk with God that participates in the works of Christ, in His Holiness and love.
