United with Christ

Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection. (Romans 6:4-5 NKJV)

There is no greater bliss than true unity. The physical union we will one day experience with Christ is spiritual union for now - union through His Holy Spirit in his life and resurrection. We do not wait for heaven to receive eternal life - we will one day enter heaven because we already have eternal life. The way by which I share Christ’s eternal life is union with His death and resurrection. His cross is now empty and stands before me that I myself may daily be placed upon it, dying to my will and living for His.
