I'm sermon-prepping for this Sunday as I preach out of Colossians 3:1-4. One of my commentaries is N.T. Wright's Colossians and Philemon.
As Wright comments on vv. 3-4 he pulls a page out of C.S. Lewis's famous essay "The Weight of Glory." Vv. 3-4 read:
:The life of Christians becomes part of “the mystery,” the secret plan of God, to be revealed at the end of time: that life is not just ‘hidden with Christ in God’ (v. 3), it actually is Christ himself (v.4), our hope of glory (1:27)."
