For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
This verse is so encouraging! Isn't it great to know that God no longer sees my sin but only the pure holiness of His Son?! I think of it this way: When I awake each morning and look to Jesus, He gives me a brand new batch of mercy for the day; then stands in front of me and looks to His Father.......and God only sees Him. Not me. Not my feeble attempt at righteousness.
