Verse of the day
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me.
Our verse of the day holds a key to living the abundant life as a follower of Jesus. The key is just one word, a word that is life-changing. The five letter word ABIDE is the word I selected as “mine” a couple of years ago as my word for the year, and it changed the way I thought about my faith in Christ. Knowing the Holy Spirit is abiding in me brought about an awareness of the closeness of the Lord. He’s not just in heaven; He’s in me! My mind, heart, and soul joined in awe that I was a residence for the Spirit of God who would guide me in all of my daily doings. What power we have that we have not tapped into! It’s there if you’re abiding in Him.
