“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love”~~ John 15:9.
I don’t know about you but I surely don’t want to simply know about God and His love. I WANT TO SHARE IN IT. I want to open my heart to God by telling Him about my hurts and my joys. I also want to know what’s on His heart too. I desire to hear from Him instead of doing all the talking myself. (I KNOW THAT’S DIFFICULT FOR US) I want the kind of relationship that Christ had with His Father in heaven while here on earth. And, I can have that through abiding, and you can too.
Our position needs to be to stay in Christ. We don’t just run to Christ when we’re scared or desperate. Abiding in Christ means to remain in His presence daily – during every season and through every turn of life. Abiding takes more than a token prayer, reading a few biblical words, or singing some praise songs on Sunday. Besides, abiding is not about doing more but about seeking God and connecting with Him. Today that connection may be about basking in his unconditional love. Tomorrow, it may be His strength that you relish. Whatever your need may be, you can find it in God’s presence daily.
