Colossians 3:3 "For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God"
When you begin to see yourself the way God sees you, your life will never be the same again. When you became a believer, God no longer saw you as you with your old sin nature. When He looks at you, He sees Jesus. You are now in Christ.
Let me give you an example: if I take a ballpoint pen, and I place it in the middle of my Bible, and close the Bible, can you see the pen now? No. All you can see is the Bible. The pen is now completely hidden within the pages of the Bible. In the same way, the moment you accept Jesus as Lord of your life, you are hidden IN Christ. When God looks at you, He doesn't see all your flaws and imperfections and failures. What does He see? He sees His darling Son, Jesus!
Colossians 3:3 says, in your new life you are "hid with Christ In God". Because your life is "hid with Christ", having a blessed future is not based on how much you strive to be perfect, or how hard you work at changing yourself. It's based on the person of Jesus. It's not about whether you deserve to be blessed, favored, and victorious. The real question is, does Jesus deserve to be blessed, favored, and victorious? Yes! And since I am hid with Christ, I am too! How? 1 John 4:17 declares "As He is, so are we in this world". He's perfect, therefore, in our born again spirit, so are we. Say it out loud, "In Christ, I am perfect!"
