Abide in Christ: The Thirty-First Day

Abide in Christ
by Andrew Murray
The Glorified One
"Your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with Him in glory" - Col. 3:3-4
"Blessed life! It is ours, for Jesus is ours. Blessed life! We have the possession within us in its hidden power and we have the prospect before us in its fullest glory. May our daily lives be the bright and blessed proof that the hidden power dwells within, preparing us for the glory to be revealed. May our abiding in Christ the Glorified One be our power to live to the glory of the Father, our fitness to share in the glory of the Son."

The glory that is to come is far more important than the dust, dirt, and messiness of this world.  When we abide, we see more clearly, feel more deeply, and understand more completely that this world is not our home.  Our home is in Christ.  You've heard it said, "Home is where the heart is."  If your heart is in Christ, then your home is with Him as well.  Remember well the lessons of abiding. Continue seeking.  Continue searching for a deeper relationship with Christ.  Rest in the fact that He holds you and the abiding is His job.  Keep your eyes on Christ.

Lord, help me abide.
