Abiding in Jesus

“Abiding in Jesus” may sound like spiritual mumbo jumbo to you.  It always did to me….  But the word abide is much more straightforward than that.  The Greek word meno means literally “to make your home in.”  When we “make our home in” His love – feeling it, saturating ourselves with it, reflecting on it, standing in awe of it – spiritual fruit begins to spring up naturally from us like roses on a rosebush.
