Jesus said John 15:5 "I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing."The word "abide" is a verb which means "to stay". Matthew Henry once said, "True Christians find by experience, that any interruption in the exercise of their faith, causes holy affections to decline, their corruptions to revive, and their comforts to droop." So, let's not be droopy!
