By Minister Henreitta Tripp

 You are no doubt thinking what do I mean by abide. Well, if you are thinking about the word “abide”, I must inform you that the word has a profound meaning in many ways, but the key to this word is abiding in Jesus, and the work He has called those who trust in Him to do. Many Christians start sincerely reading, studying and meditating on the Word of God, which is the Holy Bible, just as God told Joshua to do in Joshua 1:8 , but they soon drift away. You may be thinking why would one regress from studying the Word of God? Well, one main reason is they do not get instant gratification. God has a plan and it is a continuous daily walk with Him, as He tells His followers in Luke 9:23.

 You may read a most passionate and intimate Scripture in John 15:4, that speaks to all born again believers that if we abide, which means continue faithfully in obeying what Jesus says for His people to do, He will reward you in every area of your life.  You do not get weary and stop as though you know when your heart is right, because you do not. Only the Lord can judge your heart.  If you are obeying because you want a reward, you will receive nothing from the Lord.  I obey because I love the Lord and I trust Him; He knows my circumstances, and He will reward. AMEN!

 Scripture tells you to “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not to your own understanding, and He will direct your path”, [Proverbs 3:5-6]. AMEN!
