LIVE IN CHRIST
Jesus invites us to live in spiritual union with him.
John 14, 15 & 16
1"Let not your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe
also in Me. 2 In My Father's house are many mansions; if it
were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place
for you. 3Then I will come again and receive you to Myself;
that where I am, there you may be also.
5Thomas said, "Lord, we do not know where You are going;
how can we know the way?" 6Jesus said to him, "I am the
way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except
through Me. He who has seen Me has seen the Father.
15"If you love Me, keep My commandments. 16 I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever--17the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.
19"A little while longer and the world will see Me no more,
but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also. 23 If
anyone loves Me, he will keep My word, and My Father will
love him. We will come and make Our home with him.
1"I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.
2Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away;
and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear
more fruit. 4Abide 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.
11"These things I have spoken to you that My joy may be
in you, and that your joy may be full. 12Love one another
as I have loved you. 13Greater love has no one than this,
than to lay down one's life for his friends. 15No longer
do I call you servants, but I call you friends, for all things
that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.
5"Now I go away to Him who sent me. 7Nevertheless,
I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away;
for if I do not go away the Helper will not come to you;
but if I depart, I will send Him to you.
32"The hour has come that you will be scattered, each
to his own, and will leave Me alone. Yet I am not alone,
because the Father is with Me. 33 In Me you may have
peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of
good cheer, I have overcome the world." This Bible passage was condensed from the NKJV
