ABIDING part 3

Abiding Faith

Part 1: ARE YOU a BELIEVER or an ABIDER?

Part 2: Planted. My life can only produce from what I am connected to

 

John 15:1- TPT 1“I am a true sprouting vine, and the farmer who tends the vine is my Father. 2He cares for the branches connected to me by lifting and propping up the fruitless branches  and pruning  every fruitful branch to yield a greater harvest. 3The words I have spoken over you have already cleansed  you. 4So you must remain in life-union with me,  for I remain in life-union with you. For as a branch severed from the vine will not bear fruit, so your life will be fruitless unless you live your life intimately joined to mine.5“I am the sprouting vine and you’re my branches.  As you live in union with me as your source, fruitfulness will stream from within you—but when you live separated from me you are powerless. 6If a person is separated from me, he is discarded; such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire to be burned. 7But if you live in life-union with me and if my words  live powerfully  within you—then you can ask  whatever you desire and it will be done. ( KJV-ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you) 8When your lives bear abundant fruit, you demonstrate that you are my mature disciples who glorify my Father!9“I love each of you with the same love that the Father loves me. You must continually let my love nourish your hearts.

 

KJV says: If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

 

Many times we try to live in faith off of HEARING THE WORD (Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God)

 

ABIDE – to Live, remain, (strong’s brings out- in a state of expectancy)

 

James 1:21-kjv  Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted (IMPLANTED) word, which is able to save your souls. 22 But be ye doers (PERFORMERS) of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth (remans, abides)  therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.  

 

I want more than FAITH COMING. I want FAITH ABIDING.

Romans 1:17, Gal 3:11 and Heb 10:38 delcare THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH

 

There is a confidence that is born out of ABIDING in Him

 

John 15:7  If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

 

Eph 3:12-NIV  In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.

 

AMP: 12 In Whom, because of our faith in Him, we dare to have the boldness (courage and confidence) of free access (an unreserved approach to God with freedom and without fear).

 

This is what ABIDING FAITH LOOKS LIKE
