Abide in Me - WFW
God calls us to abide in Him – to abide – to remain, to sojourn, to tarry
I am called to abide in Him and bear fruit
His word is to abide in me
I am to abide in His love by keeping His commands
In doing these things the Father is glorified and His joy is in me and my joy is made full.

He desires us to sit at His feet and tarry awhile....
