Hidden with Christ: Raised

Jim Smith’s new book begins in the right place: resurrection. 9780830835751_p0_v1_s260x420

Hidden in Christ is an extended meditation on Colossians 3:1-17. Like the passage itself Jim starts with the concept of resurrection reminding us of the fact that Christ has indeed been raised and so have we. We have been raised with Christ. This “little” fact often escapes our attention. Our resurrection is in force now and will be completely fulfilled in due time.

The resurrection of Jesus is a reminder that there is nothing from which we ourselves cannot be “raised”.
