Description A hypocrite is someone whose outside “face” does not reflect their inner reality. Having given great advice regarding how to react to Jesus’ preeminence in all of life, God now challenges the Christian to act out your claims. You claim to be dead to this world? Let’s see it. You claim to be alive unto God? Let’s see it.
Bible Passage Colossians 2:20-3:4
20 Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,
21 (Touch not; taste not; handle not;
22 Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?
23 Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.
1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
