The other day I was reading in the book of John and this is what it said,
John 15:9 "As the Father has loved Me, so I have loved you. Abide in My love."
It says to Abide in His love. Abide means to remain or stay. That means we need to stay put in His love. Sadly, it's all to easy to get itchy feet and start wandering. There are many reasons that we sometimes fail to abide in His love. All to often however, we may just forget . But it is so important that we remain in God's love for us, that we Abide.
In Ephesians 5:17-19 it says, " ...so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God."
I love the wording this passage uses, "rooted and grounded" Roots mean that you aren't going anywhere. We need to be rooted, we need to Abide. The One who created life, loves us so very much and He wants us to know that. To be confident in it. Happy Monday.
"To say that I am made in the image of God is to say that love is the reason for my existence, for God is love."~Thomas A. Kempis
