What is hope? Everyone has hope. Everyone has hope to receive something for their walking, their faith, their work. But what is the True hope, the hope that will not put you to shame, that will not fail?
“If ye continue IN My word, then are ye My disciples Indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:31-32
“If ye abide IN Me, and My words abide IN you….” John 15:7
What does it mean to abide, to be found “IN” Christ? His Word, His Teaching – is Christ. What does it mean to abide IN His word? Whatever you are consumed by, whatever you are stuck IN – that is what you are IN. When you read Scriptures, do you find yourself IN them? Or is it an unreachable goal: “I want to be like that, but I’m not like that”?
No believer in God wants to sin. A person repents, renounces the committed sins, but never comes to the essence of the sin! No matter how much he repents – the sin continues to produce its fruits, and they appear and express themselves again and again. There will be no victory, until a person finds the truth and realizes the essence of sin. So what is Sin?
