Colossians 3:1-5 The Passion Translation (TPT)

One with Christ in Glory

Christ’s resurrection is your resurrection too. This is why we are to yearn for all that is above, for that’s where Christ sits enthroned at the place of all power, honor, and authority![a] Yes, feast on all the treasures of the heavenly realm and fill your thoughts with heavenly realities, and not with the distractions of the natural realm.

Your crucifixion[b] with Christ has severed the tie to this life, and now your true life is hidden away in God in Christ. And as Christ himself is seen for who he really is, who you really are will also be revealed, for you are now one with him in his glory!

New Creation Life

Live as one who has died to every form of sexual sin and impurity. Live as one who died to diseases,[c] and desires for forbidden things,[d] including the desire for wealth, which is the essence of idol worship.


  1. Colossians 3:1 The “right hand of God,” is an obvious metaphor for the place of power, authority, honor, and glory.
  2. Colossians 3:3 The Aramaic could be translated “Your death and your life are both hidden with the Messiah in God.”
  3. Colossians 3:5 This is only found in the Aramaic manuscripts. It is omitted in the Greek.
  4. Colossians 3:5 The Aramaic word implies “magic.”
