What Does it Mean to Abide in Christ? May 2, 2018

Jesus said the opposite of abiding is being “apart” from Him. He also said anyone who does not abide in Him is like a branch that is gathered and burned. Finally, the apostle John writes that anyone who confesses that Jesus is the Son of God abides in Him.

In this short video clip, I address these questions and share the truth about abiding.
