Igitur si conresurrexistis Christo quae sursum sunt quaerite ubi Christus est in dextera Dei sedens quae sursum sunt sapite non quae supra terram mortui enim estis et vita vestra abscondita est cum Christo in Deo. (Col 3:2, Vulg.)
Therefore, if you have been resurrected with Christ, seek then those things which are above where Christ is sitting at God’s right-hand; taste those things which are below the earth, not what is below the earth. For you are dead and your life… your life is hidden with Christ in God. (Translation mine)
My words and thoughts do both express this notion,
That Life hath with the sun a double motion
The first Is straight, and our diurnal friend,
The other Hid, and doth obliquely bend.
One life is wrapt In flesh, and tends to earth.
The other winds towards Him, whose happy birth
Taught me to live here so, That still one eye
Should aim and shoot at that which Is on high:
Quitting with daily labor all My pleasure,
To gain at harvest an eternal Treasure.
George Herbert, “Our life is hid with Christ in God” (1593–1633)
