”Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love.” – John 15:9
The original Greek word for “abide” used in this verse is ‘meno” which means; “To remain, not to depart, to continue to be present, to be held, kept, continually.” (Strong’s Concordance). We are to be continually present, held, and kept in the love of Christ. He wishes for us to live in that love … continually. Every minute of every day. It’s almost too awesome a thing to put into words. It’s the kind of love we can rest in. We don’t have to perform a certain way to win His love. He loves us as we are.
Jesus Christ loves you more than anyone else does. His Word says so, and His Word is truth. Abide in His love and experience freedom and peace like you’ve never known.
