Meaning: to remain stable or fixed in a state a love
God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides continually in him. 1 John 4.16 (AMP)
He is calling us to a new level of love — one that cannot be shaken.
A love where security doesn’t come naturally, it comes from remaining in Christ, leaning on Him, trusting Him, depending on Him — continually.
And, it’s only out of the steady abundance of His love in us that any measure of love is able to pour out through our choices, words, and actions.
By abiding in Jesus and His love, and letting Him abide in us, we create space for a truly meaningful life and provide a way for those around us to see the fulfilling and purposeful life that God seeks for us all.
Our love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples. Jn. 13.35
