ENCRYPTED WITH CHRIST IN GOD
Scripture Reading: Colossians 3:1-4 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
According to the above verses, our lives are hidden with Christ in God. Hidden means concealed or secret, and the word encrypt is derived from the same Greek word used in this verse. Encryption is a process of converting messages, information, or data into a form unreadable by anyone except the intended recipient. Jesus told His disciples, "Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God...Luke 8:10." Believers are intended recipients of all the spiritually encrypted information concerning our Lord and His Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, will decipher or decrypt things concerning Him unto us. Imbedded in all the Biblical symbols, numbers, and pictures, are His unsearchable riches and who we are in Him. "It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings [is] to search out a matter._ Proverbs 25:2." As a king and priest search for Him with your whole heart because to know Him is to know yourself!
