My Whole Life

  If you are looking for the posts about

God's Amazing Blessing
Announcement—I'm moving!

here's the link to the first Part: 

Then follow the arrows at the bottom of each post to the next Part.
There are 10 parts in all. 
I recommend that you read each part, there are amazing details—
and God took care of each and every one! 

 This post is the continuation of my Study of Colossians. 
When Christ, Who is our life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in [the splendor of His] glory. Colossians 3:4 (AMP)
As I read this verse, I first had to ask the question, "Is Christ REALLY my life?" Looking back over the previous verses, He should be. But is He—really?

Christ is returning. And when He does, I will be overwhelmed with His glory and honor. But am I, RIGHT NOW, overwhelmed with His glory and honor?

Think about it this way: In the presence of certain people we act a certain way. For example, when we see a police car driving behind us, we immediately take our foot off the gas and check the speedometer. The presence of that police car, makes us more aware of what we are doing, and if we are breaking the law by speeding.
The fact that Christ is ever-present, should have a constant impact on my thoughts, actions, words, motives—all aspects of my life.

Christ, who is our life. Because of Who Christ is. Because of all He's done. Because of His love for me. I should want Him to be my whole life.

Only when I am permeated with a deep sense of reverence for God (Acts 9:31; MSG), will Christ be my whole life.
