“Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood He entered in *once* into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” (Hebrews 9:12-14)
“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”?
