where and how you live!
Living is where you are –
Abiding is how you live where you are.
having been born again,
not of corruptible seed but incorruptible,
through the word of God
which lives and abides forever,
1 Peter 1 23
Living basically means to be alive,
… to be able to do.
Living is where you are
… and the potential that is there for you!
Abiding is about what you do where you live.
Abiding is where you do things,
… not because you are paid to do them
but because you want to do what you are doing.
In other words,
… where you abide
… is where your heart is.
For this reason Jesus said …
If you abide in Me,
and My words abide in you,
you will ask what you desire,
and it shall be done for you.
John 15 7
