What it Means to Remain in Jesus

John 15:4

“Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.”

Synonyms for the Greek word used here for remain:  abide, dwell, endure, continue, live

We are called to remain in Christ, and he promises to remain, abide, dwell, endure ,continue, and live in us. It is not about what we do for Jesus, it is about what Jesus does for us

The fruit is the nature of the Vine.

Where is your primary union? Where is mine? Where do I abide, abide, dwell, endure, continue,  and live

Thanks to Steve Marsh for sharing these thoughts today in his sermon.
