Adam Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Verse 1 (Colossians 3:1)

If ye then - Ει ουν· Seeing then that ye are risen with Christ; this refers to what he had said, Colossians 2:12 ; : Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him. As, therefore, ye have most cordially received the doctrine of Christ; and profess to be partakers of a spiritual religion, that promises spiritual and eternal things; seek those things, and look to be prepared for the enjoyment of them.
