To Abide in Christ

If you get a chance before you listen to this message, read the fifteenth chapter of John. That’s the portion of scripture that we will be studying together. If your preferred version of the Bible is the King James, ESV or NASB count the number of times the word “abide” occurs as you read. If you prefer the NIV than count the number of times the word “remain” occurs. It is impossible to read John 15 without coming away with the impression that the idea of abiding or remaining in Christ is hugely important, thus the repetition, but what precisely does it mean to abide in Christ? That’s the question we’ll be taking up when we worship God through the study of His Word.
