What does it mean to ABIDE in Christ? John 15:4 tells us, “Abide in Me, and I in you…” The word ABIDE in John 15:4 is the Greek word MENO. It means to remain, to continue, to tarry, to endure, and to wait for.
If we are to remain in the place of abiding we must first get there or get connected. To be connected to Christ is to be in relationship with HIM. He tells us to continue there. This relationship is long term and eternal. Once we get connected we cannot leave HIM. He wants us to stay with HIM forever. Stay in the relationship so there can be a forever in eternal life. The word also means to endure. A life abiding in Christ is not always an easy one. The difference is it is the best one. When we abide in HIM, no matter what comes your way; be it persecution, financial hard times, sickness or otherwise, We are in Christ and He is in us! As long as we are abiding, God is always there to help us in any given situation. It is not always a feeling of HIS presence but a knowing that HIS presence is with us. Abiding also means to wait for. God is always with us but we may not see HIIM act at the moment we think HE should. We wait for HIM to present HIS solution, plan, or give us direction. As we ABIDE in HIM we learn to wait for Him. Abiding in Christ is an amazing concept but when carried out in your life will change you forever.
WELCOME! Hello all, Just taking a minute to greet you and welcome you to my blog. What are some topics you would like to discuss? I have a few in mind but would like first to hear from you.
Hey, did you get my new book– Unveiling Eternity? Hope you did and learn about the end times. We can talk about it if you like. If you haven’t read my other book –Called to the Uttermost, I know you will love it. It includes my powerful life story and my amazing call to be a missionary in the uttermost. Some stories I tell you will rock your world. I wish I could have put the pictures but here I can!
On second thought “chat” sounds like small talk.
We can engage a more profound conversation than merely chatting. How about, Let’s converse… Or Let’s expostulate, which is to express protest, opposition, or criticism. We are free to have an insightful, thoughtful, and reflective, dialogue. Join me in a discussion.
If you read my bio, you can see I’ve been “around the block a few times” with diverse experiences. So let us see what topic interests you.
