What did Paul mean by everything belongs to you in 1 Corinthians 3:21-22?

Paul writes in chapter 3:21-22 that everything belongs to Christians (the church) the world, life, death, the present, & the future.  What is meant by everything belongs to us?

1 Corinthians 3:21

MSG - 21 I don't want to hear any of you bragging about yourself or anyone else. Everything is already yours as a gift - Paul, Apollos, Peter, the world, life, death, the present, the future - all of it is yours, and you are privileged to be in union with Christ, who is in union with God.
