Abiding In Christ

Jesus gave His followers a very interesting command in John 15:4. He said, “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.”  We are to “abide in Christ” and He promises to Abide in us. But what does the word abide mean and what does it mean to abide “in Christ?” How do we do this? What does abiding in Christ look like in our everyday life? Obviously, it affects our ability to bear fruit, but what exactly does that mean. If you’re like me – I think it’s time that we learn as much as we can about “abiding in Christ” especially because this was a command for us to follow. We need to understand this command and obey it and find out for ourselves if “abiding in Christ” makes a difference in our lives.
