"For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end," (Hebrews 3:14).
Christ is not just an idea, He is a person. More than a person Christ is also a spiritual place in God; and being called a partaker of Christ is something everyone should wish for because therein lies all the spiritual blessings anyone could ever dream of. When you come into Christ you are blessed with all spiritual blessings in the heavenly places. There is nothing a believer lacks that God has not provided for in Christ. Christ is that place where you come and all things are made available. It's a place of abundance, not lack; blessings not cursings; celebration and not misery.
There is an atmosphere every believer in Christ operate under whether they know it or not. It is akin to the "secret place" mentioned in Psalm 91:1. When you enter a room, a place or country, be conscious that you are in Christ and therefore a certain divine ambience, presence and atmosphere follows you and only things consistent with that atmosphere called Christ are allowed to happen. The Jews had a glimpse of this "God-atmosphere" when they wandered in the wilderness. The extremely high temperatures during the day and extremely low temperatures at night in the desert did not touch them because they had their own atmosphere as God was a pillar of cloud by day to give them shade and pillar of fire by night to give them heat and light. As a result, their clothes did not wax old, their shoes never wasted and there was not a feeble person among their tribes.
Apostle John knew the deal in Christ when he said, "In Him[Christ] was life and the life was the light of men." (John 1:4). Being a partaker of Christ makes you a partaker of life in Christ. There is no death in Christ. Death is anything inconsistent with the Presence of God. Broken homes, sickness, pain, aging, fear, depression, anxiety are all manifestations of death but in Christ all these things are foreign. It is only in Christ where all these things are passed way because if any man is in Christ he is a new creation, old things are passed away and behold all things have become new. Refuse to be sick, to age, to fear; for the Lord is your city of refuge. No plague shall come near your dwelling called Christ. You shall trample upon all the power of the enemy without being hurt, and with long life you will be satisfied because you are a partaker of Christ the Word, the Person who is also a Place.
I am a partaker of the life in Christ.
