Abide In The Lord

Sis. Stella Dhinakaran

Paul the Apostle wrote to the Ephesian church through this letter to Timothy. He writes this letter to encourage and assure the people that God is with them and they need to be strong under challenging circumstances. When we walk according to God’s commands, He abides in us; “This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit” (1 John 4:13).

This kind of godly life is supreme in the Christian way of living. Jesus says, “I and My Father are one” (John 10:30). Like Him, you too should abide in the Lord as the branch abides in the vine (John 15:5). Have you found out the greatness of this divine life? Are you experiencing it in your life? He who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him (I Corinthians 6:17). Therefore, “Is Christ in you, the hope of glory?” (Colossians 1:27). Just sit at His feet and ponder about this. 

I had a humble beginning in my life. When I was young, my mother used to scold me for my deeds, but the Lord through His love came seeking me to set right my life which was full of shortcomings. He opened my spiritual eyes. The darkness departed, and the light of Jesus made me shine (2 Corinthians 4:6). The Lord came and dwelt in me and walked with me and I became His daughter (2 Corinthians 6:16-18). My mother who saw the change in me began to feel proud of me. After that, watching the life of my devout husband, I began to read the Bible and pray. This enabled the Holy Spirit to descend upon me, and I received the divine blessing of abiding in the Lord, and He in me. I also obtained the joyful and blessed life of serving the Lord along with my husband. Today, even in my old age, I still rejoice in the divine life of abiding in the Lord and He in me.
SCRIPTURE to LIFE

Will you surrender your life today to the Lord so that your life which is full of shortcomings is transformed by your abiding in Him and He in you? When you surrender yourself to the Lord, you will receive the blessing of being united with Him to lead a devout life.
Prayer:
Blessed Father! Give me a life of abiding in You. Help me to live a life that is pleasing to You. I surrender my life completely at Your feet. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit, so that I will be washed and cleansed by Your consecrated blood and give me the grace to be established in You forever. 

In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
