Participation In the Life of Christ
Do you know the best evidence that we have discovered God’s dream for ourselves? It’s when we participate in the life of Christ. What a difference it would make if everyone who came to church came telling each other how they had met the living Christ in their circumstances during the past week of their lives. What would be more wonderful—is for many of our children to witness our participation in the life of Christ as we deal with our family problems. This would be the greatest indication that we are participating in the life of Christ.
1 Corinthians 10:14-17

14 Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry. 15 I speak to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say. 16 Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ? 17 Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf. NIV

The Corinthians’ conflict in the fellowship was the result of failing to participate in the life of Christ. They were blessed with spiritual gifts—but they were bound up in selfishness. We will never escape the prison of our selfish dreams until we embrace the life of Christ—until we participate in the life of Christ. Paul tells us what happens when we participate in Christ’s life.
Galatians 2:20

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. NIV
