Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.”

John 15:4

The word “menno” means to abide. To abide. The words abide and abode have the same root. And they mean that you make a home there; that you belong there. You remain there. You’re able to kick off your shoes, take off your wet socks after walking through the snow, and you warm up by the fire. Like your relationship with God. There is this ongoing, never-ending communion between you and the Father that fuels your decisions. It gives you real spiritual power; it gives you vision, discernment, wisdom.


God, I want I abide in you. Thank you for making a home that I belong to. Help to put my security in that home, but to be bold for you.


Do you feel like you abide in God’s love for you?
