Abiding in Christ

Glory to God

It is always encouraging and exciting when we come together "and everyone has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation or an interpretation" (1 Cor. 14:26) for the strengthening of the church. Throughout yesterday's meeting God was speaking to us through the prayers, the sharing of His Word, the Lord's Supper, and revelation, communicating His desire for us to enter His presence and remain in Him.

The Lord is speaking to us about being a fruitful people and yesterday we looked at what it means to remain in Christ in order to bear lasting fruit (John 15:5). Richard shared a message entitled, The evidence of remaining which you can listen to here. In his sermon, Richard showed us how the believer can know that s/he is remaining in Christ. Looking at a section of Psalm 16, quoted by the apostle Peter in Acts 2:25-28, we saw the consequence or evidence of remaining in God. We can identify whether we are remaining in Christ when:

  1. We are aware of God's abiding presence. Acts 2:25
  2. We feel secure and are able to stand firm because we know God is near. Acts 2:25
  3. We are satisfied in God and content in Him. Acts 2:26
  4. We overflow with worship in response to God. Acts 2:26
  5. We abide in hope. Acts 2:26,27
  6. We know the way to fullness of life. Acts 2:28
  7. We are filled with joy in God's presence. Acts 2:28
