"Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear
fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can
you, unless you abide in Me.
“I am the vine, you are the branches.
He who abides in
Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you
can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he
is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather
them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you
will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
[For when we
abide in Him -- and He in us -- He shows us His will and
that's all we long for!]
"By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much
fruit; so you will be My disciples. As the Father loved Me,
I also have loved you; abide in My love. If you
keep My commandments, you
will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s
commandments and abide in His love."
"From the end of

A strong tower from the enemy.
I will abide in Your tabernacle forever;
I will trust in the shelter of Your wings.

You have given me the heritage of those

You will prolong the king’s life,
His years as many generations.
He shall abide before God forever."
"He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my
My God, in Him I will trust.'"
"Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, 'If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And
you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you
"He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to
walk just as He walked."
1 John 2:6
"He who loves his brother abides in the light, and
there is no cause for stumbling in him."
