A Clean House

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

John 15:4. ” Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me.”

So often we limit our meditation on this verse to our abiding in Christ, in the Vine. We tend to glance over that He also abides in us. Let’s think of our bodies as a home for our Lord. What condition do we want our home to be in when He is in it? We want it clean. We must co-operate with His Holy Spirit and His lopping shears to be rid of all sin, all bad habits and thoughts. We also want our bodies, the place for His abiding, to be strong and healthy. We want strength in faith, obedience and commitment. We want health through eating correctly and exercising. Our question is what condition is our home in for our Lord’s abiding?
