Abide Women's Conference
Our annual Women's Conference will be held again this fall on September 15 and 16. We will be looking at John 15 and 16 and Jesus' command to abide. Do you want to experience a fruitful spiritual life? Join us this weekend as we set aside time to sit at His feet.
Paula Arbaugh of Calvary Chapel San Antonio will be sharing from the word with us, as well as Bridgett Ford of The Gathering.
Jesus commands us to abide and describes the work of the Father on the “branches” which are us. The hope and promise of God to believers cannot be understated. How many of us truly grasp the idea of dependence on God through abiding? What does it look like?
Abide in Love:
Another aspect of abiding is that we abide in the love of God. How does Jesus define ‘abiding in love’? By obedience. Let’s dig deeper into what it means to abide in love.
The Cost of Abiding
Jesus is very clear that following Him comes with a cost. To say that Christianity promises love, joy and peace is true: with God we have those things. But in this life we must take His words seriously: association with Jesus is an isolation from the world and promises its hatred toward us. A sober look at these words from Jesus prepare us for what we will experience as we follow Him in our daily lives.
The Abiding Presence
We can, as Jesus said, do nothing without Him. After the call of Christ to abide through obedience, in sacrificial love and endure hostility from the world, we might shrink back had it not been for this word: “when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you!” The Holy Spirit comes to abide in US, as we abide in Christ. What a glorious truth!
