For we have become partakers of Christ…” (Hebrews 3:14).

The Wright brothers. Rodgers and Hammerstein. Sears and Roebuck. History has been impacted by a number of noteworthy, successful partnerships.

There is no greater partnership than the one Jesus offers to all who take His yoke and learn from Him (Matthew 11:29). You can become a partaker (metochos, or partner) of Christ.

Of note is what other partnerships occur when your partnership with Christ has begun:

  • You are a partaker (metochos) of the heavenly calling (Hebrews 3:1).

  • You are a partaker (metochos) of the Holy Spirit (Hebrews 6:4).

  • You are a beloved son of God who will be partaking (metochos) of His chastisement and disciple (Hebrews 12:28).

There is no greater partnership anyone can have in this life than becoming and remaining a lifelong partner of Christ.
