…a few thoughts on abiding…

fruit

Abide.

When?

Now.

Not tomorrow.  Not in a week.

NOW.

Abide is in the present tense.

Abode is where we live.

Abide is how we live.

I am thinking that I want my abode

to be abiding …in Him,

wherever that is, wherever it takes me, whatever the cost.

And right NOW?

Right now, the cost is obediently choosing to be faithful in the little things, praying through the big, and trusting, clinging to, the One who gives the power to take my abiding and somehow to make it bear fruit. And fruit? Fruit is a good thing.

 “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine,

so neither can you unless you abide in Me.”

John 15:4
