The Abiding Life-Part 6 

September 26

 

Jesus said, “Abide in Me and I in you.”  If you are truly a child of God the Holy Spirit lives in you and you have His presence in you, so live your life surrendered.  Not only is He in you by the Holy Spirit, you have a position in Christ. 

John 15:4– “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me”

My friend, this is a powerful thing God is saying. At the moment of your salvation He steps into your human spirit, but not only that, at the moment of your salvation, my friend, God put you in Him. You see the first man that God created was Adam, and when Adam sinned in the garden, because we were all in Adam when he sinned, we sinned. We inherited sin from Adam. There came a time in your life when you were born again, you were born from above and what happened at that moment is that God took you out of Adam and He placed you in Christ Jesus. You are in Christ for all eternity. Therefore Jesus is your life. Jesus is your victory!
