For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. Colossians 3:3
A businessman was often asked what he did for a living. “I sell underground condominiums,” was his serious reply. After enjoying his questioners’ puzzlement for a few moments, he would say, “Actually, I develop cemeteries—the land, the burial plots, and so on.” This amusing answer was a good ice-breaker in conversations, but it raises an interesting question: Can we live a life totally protected from all earthly circumstances? Is there a more practical way than living underground?
The apostle Paul suggested something along those lines: We are “dead,” but instead of being buried in the earth our life “is hidden with Christ in God.” That being true, it means that nothing can touch us apart from the will and purpose of God. We are protected and provided for today and every day until we go to be with Christ in eternity. It’s the same image we find in Psalm 91:2: “[The Lord] is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.”
We live in a day when the future is more uncertain than ever. But if you are in Christ, you are protected and provided for in Him.
