Are you abiding in trust?

“Just as the Father has loved Me, so I have also loved you; abide in my love. If you keep my commandments you abide in my love” (John 15:9-10a).

We will all face storms in life, but Christians have hope in all things as we abide in Christ, and He abides in us (15:4).  Jesus is present with us through His Holy Spirit to empower us in the Christian life. But we must choose to abide in Him.  We do this as we obey His commands, demonstrating trust. In Christ we are able to overcome in all things (Phil 4:13).

We recently learned how Hezekiah is an example of someone who, despite impossible circumstances, put his trust in God and experienced His salvation. Hezekiah made mistakes (1 Kings 18:13-16), but God was gracious to hear his cry for help (19:14-19) and responded with deliverance that only God could bring (19:34-37). Are you abiding in trust?

Join our Small Group this week (Oct 27th) as we look at this theme in the life of Hezekiah and consider how it applies to us now.
