The same power that raised Jesus raised you to live a new life.

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God (Colossians 3:1).

When I first really heard this verse, it was as if there were neon lights pointing to the amazing truth that I have been raised with Christ.

That should get your attention, too. Christian, you have been raised with Christ. Paul is declaring a truth about you.

The same power that raised Jesus Christ physically 2000 years ago raised you spiritually to live a new life.

And it happened the moment you believed. Paul explained in his letter to the Romans: “We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life” (Romans 6:4).

That old you was crucified with Christ. You are a new, a child of God, with a brand new life. you died to your old self and rose again to life in Christ Jesus.

Now, because this true, you can rely on him in all things. This is the point of Colossians 3:1 – seek the things that are above where Christ is.

In other words, look to Jesus. He is now your life. And nothing in this world compares to Him. If the world tries to deceive you with false teaching, look to Jesus. He is the truth. If trials and tribulations come your way, look to Jesus. He will never leave you nor forsake you. Only he has said, “Come unto me and I will give you rest.”

And while you are seeking the things above, set your mind there as well. That's where true joy and peace are experienced. You will never find them in the world.

Don't sell yourself short. You have new life with Christ. You are now a child of God, raised to live a new life.

You've been raised with Christ. He is now your life. Let that truth soak in. Set your heart on things above.

In Him,


Bob Christopher

About Bob Christopher, Bob Davis and Richard Peifer

Bob Christopher
: Born and raised in Marietta, Georgia, Bob grew up in a Christian home and received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at the age of 13. During his high school and college years, Bob’s deepest desire was to be “God’s guy” and yet he struggled with the question of how to live the Christian life.

His "roller-coaster" experience in living the Christian life eventually led him to a bible study where he discovered what he was missing—the life of Jesus Christ.

Bob says: “Salvation isn’t a self-improvement program. Salvation is receiving and experiencing new life altogether. It’s a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ based on His love and truth”.

Bob Davis: In the summer of 1977, at the age of 33, Bob Davis met the living Christ and invited Jesus to take control of his life. Much of his first five years in Christ found Bob attending Bible conferences and seminars, listening to Christian radio, and performing volunteer ministry services.

Bob spent many years in the fields of broadcasting and audio production for Christian radio and as a result of this work, the message of grace penetrated his heart and he embraced his new life in Christ.

Bob says: “I thank God I’ve had the opportunity to serve these many years. It has been an incredible journey of learning, growth, and opportunity for ministry.”

Richard Peifer: Born in Riverside, California and raised in the Seventh-day Adventist church, Richard grew up with a keen understanding of and desire to keep The Law. Even with a degree in Ministerial Studies, Richard had to face the truth – he knew lots of theological and biblical facts, but there was no reality of the abundant life Jesus promised. He left ministry and spent the next twenty-six years in the high tech industry.

During this time, Richard and his wife, Lois, studied to discover what they really believed. The more Richard learned about the love and grace of God, the more he wanted to help others leave the bondage of legalism and rest in the finished work of Christ Jesus.

Richard says: “This statement by James Ryle has been the undergirding message of my ministry: Grace is the empowering presence of God, enabling me to be who He has called me to be and to do what He has called me to do.”

Andrew Farley: Andrew is a member of the Basic Gospel board of directors, senior pastor of Ecclesia: Church Without Religion in Lubbock, Texas, and bestselling author of five Christian books. Andrew is a weekly contributing host of Basic Gospel and shares the life-changing message of the finished work of Jesus Christ in a calm, sometimes comical, always passionate way.

Andrew says: “Basic Gospel Radio proclaims the finished work of Jesus Christ and the beautiful, liberating implications of what it means for us to live under God’s new covenant of grace.”
