I will be encouraging our ladies to abide in Christ. As I have been studying John 15:1-11, I have again purposed to make this a must every day, preferably in the wee hours of the morning. This is a battle I constantly face - getting my feet planted on the floor before the sun is up.
But as I study about abiding in Christ, I become invigorated. I know my strength lies in Him alone. How can I expect to respond to the constant barrage of life, without looking to Him first? But, abiding in Christ, isn't just checking the box of "quiet time". It is a constant, minute by minute, hour by hour realization my God is with me. He sees everything I do and think.
I want the mind of Christ.
I want to abide with Him.
And then this will be the outcome:
II Corinthians 2:14
"But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place."
