 Our "life," which "is hid with Christ in God" (Col. 3:3), is a tested life, not a life exposed to be tested-and God has been glorified in that life. (Hunt’s Sayings - 552 by R. Hunt)
 The life with which the power of temptation, guilt and the attacks of sin are connected exists no longer to faith. By death all that was connected with it has come to an end. (Colossians 3 by J.N. Darby)
 We have this life in Christ, but it is not here our union as one body with Him. It is the individual character of the Christian, to whom Christ, the Head, is everything. (Colossians 3 by J.N. Darby)
 The Colossians were in danger of subjecting themselves to ordinances, and thereby were in a position to consider man as living in the world; and the Apostle makes them feel that they are dead with Christ. (Colossians 3 by J.N. Darby)
 We are renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created us. But this source is a life, which needs that the Holy Spirit should reveal to it the objects that are suited to it, and that awaken these tastes and feelings, which satisfy them and cause them to grow. It needs that the Spirit of God should act in it to give it strength; but it is a real life, a nature which has its tastes attached to its very existence. (Colossians 3 by J.N. Darby)
 From whom is this life hidden? It is hidden from the men of the world. The men of this world do not understand Christians, as far as our inner springs and motives are concerned. (The Believer's Identification With the Death and Resurrection of Christ by B. Anstey)
