Full Partakers: All Day, Every Day

For we have become fellows with Christ (the Messiah) and share in all He has for us, if only we hold our first newborn confidence and original assured expectation [in virtue of which we are believers] firm and unshaken to the end.โ€

Hebrews 3:14 AMPC

When a lot of us first came to know Christ, there was this confidence we had; and with this confidence came unspeakable joy, โ€œIโ€™m a Child of God!โ€ We would exclaim; โ€œMy sins are forgiven!โ€
We felt brand new, shiny and untainted. Somewhere along the line, however, this confidence began to wane.

“Am I really a Child Of God?โ€ We asked ourselves the first time we did something wrong.

โ€œCan God still be pleased with me?โ€ We asked when it happened for the 50th time.

โ€œIs God really still with me? Or is He now angry with me?โ€ We wondered the first time we experienced a setback.

Subtly, we began to get discouraged and believe somewhere in the back of our minds that weโ€™re no longer as โ€œIn Christโ€ as we were before.

We have a way of complicating things that have no business being complicated for ourselves. These beliefs have made people live in constant fear and worry.
We were saved by grace, through faith when we first believed. Thatโ€™s it. You canโ€™t undo what Christ has done and you can’t do more than what Christ did.
You, Child of God, share in ALL Christ has for you simply by holding on to that confidence you had when you first believed.
