If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you
(J. C. Ryle)
"If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you" John 15:7
To abide in Christ, means to keep up a habit of constant close communion with Him — to be always . . .
leaning on Him,
resting on Him,
pouring out our hearts to Him, and
using Him as our Fountain of life and strength — as our chief Companion and best Friend!
To have Christ's words abiding in us, is to keep His sayings and precepts continually before our memories and minds, and to make them the guide of our actions and the rule of our daily conduct and behavior.
