 4 By which exceedingly great and precious promises are given to us, that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.1

Colossians 1:12

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 12 Giving thanks to the Father, who has made us fit to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. [To partake is to share in the inheritance of a son, who is in union with Christ and the Father. To be a saint in the light is to have experienced the light to arise in your heart like a magnificent star; and then be guided by God, who is light, in everything to do and say; thus to be walking according to His will, not your own will any longer. From the Word of the Lord within: "Walking in the light is to be guided through life by God; walking in darkness is making your own decisions as to what to do and say. First the light arises, then the kingdom. Light comes from faith in the voice. The arising of the light will be unmistakable; it is an ego-shattering experience."]

Hebrews 3:14

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold firm the beginning of our confidence to the end, [We can enter union with Christ and God if we through the Spirit mortify the sinful nature, which occurs if we heed and obey Him as we persistently and patiently wait for Him. To wait on God is to persistently sit in humble silence, listen for his voice and words, watch for his revelations, hear his commands, and then obey His voice.]
