Colossians 3:1

If then ye were raised together with Christ (ei oun sunhgerthte twi Xristwi).
Condition of the first class, assumed as true, like that in 2:20 and the other half of the picture of baptism in 2:12 and using the same form sunhgerthte as then which see for the verb sunegeirw. Associative instrumental case of Xristwi.

The things that are above (ta anw).
"The upward things" (cf. Philippians 3:14), the treasure in heaven (Matthew 6:20). Paul gives this ideal and goal in place of merely ascetic rules.

Seated on the right hand of God (en dexiai tou teou kathmenov).
Not periphrastic verb, but additional statement. Christ is up there and at God's right hand. Cf. 2:3.
