Abide literally means to dwell, remain, stay, continue. Abide as used by the Lord means to live out of, to draw life from, to live because of, through, by. This means we need to live like a favored son or daughter. Living out of the sense of sonship. Living out of our identity as His son or daughter. Making no apology for living as His son or daughter! Walking every day knowing that we are loved by the Father in an immeasurable and unconditional way.
