HId With Christ in God

My husband and I have often pondered the thought if we were on a deserted island, who would we most want with us.  We both add the same person to our list, our son Noah.

If I had to hide somewhere, or to survive somewhere, I would certainly want to do it with our son, who is a Force Reconnaissance Marine. He knows the secrets of stealth, of navigation and survival.  I have great confidence in his abilities to safely see us through almost any situation.

As Christians, we are hidden.  The Scriptures say that "your life is hid with Christ in God,"(Colossians 3:3.)  If we are hidden with Christ, in God, could we be any safer?  Is there any need which is not provided?  Is there any problem He does not know?

A person hides something that is precious to them.  Our Lord has hidden us in the most-protected, safest, most secure place possible, in Himself with the Lord Jesus.  He has hidden us with His most precious Son. We should take great comfort in that.  

No matter what situations befall us, the truth of the matter, and the truth we should affirm by faith, is that we are hid with Christ in God.  No one, no matter how powerful, can touch us there.  

Matthew 10:28
"And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."
