THIS WEEK, WE'LL TALK ABOUT . . .
. . .what it means to abide in Christ. In the scripture Jesus encourages those who follow him to,
"Abide in me as I abide in you."
I don't like the "abide" language. My problem with "abide" and its noun, "abode," is they are slightly archaic words. We don't talk a whole lot about abiding in something or someone; and I can't remember the last time I heard someone speak of his or her "abode." Instead, I like "make their home in him."
