"Christ is risen. So are we, for we are risen in him. Now this could never be unless Christ was also human as well as divine. Note how Paul devastates both errors, heresies. Since we are risen with Christ we are to seek. And let us say right here that no man seeks before he is risen. He who is dead lies silent in the grave! A dead man seeks nothing because he positively cannot do so. See 2:13. To “quicken” is to give life, to make lively. All living things have life but all are not lively, because lively means action. Many things that live have life but they have no action. They are not lively. What are the 'Christ’s ones' to seek? Those things above, specifically those things where Christ is—seated at the right hand of God."
