abide.

ABIDE.

I have clung to this word, this command, during this season.  I found an explanation of this word back in September in Erwin Lutzer’s book, How to have a Whole Heart in a Broken World.

This word can be found repeated over and over in John 15:1-17, some translations use the word remain.

Lutzer explained that to abide means

to dwell in Christ.

John 15:4-5

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. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.

For apart from me
you can do
nothing.

NOTHING.
