Key to Abiding

What is the secret? Be wholly occupied with Jesus.  Sink the roots of your being in faith and love and obedience deep down into Him.  Come away out of every other place to abide here.  Give up everything for the inconceivable privilege of being a branch on earth of the glorified Son of God in Heaven.  Let Christ be first.  Let Christ be all.  Do not be occupied with the abiding - be occupied with Christ.  He will hold you, He will keep you abiding in Him He will abide in you. - Andrew Murray

Focus on Christ.  Focus on Christ when sorrow overwhelms.  Focus on Christ when you are tempted to boast in your own "goodness."  Focus on Who Christ is when life and people are unfaithful. 

Christ is the key to abiding.
