“But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you, so you don’t need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you everything you need to know, and what he teaches you is true-it is not a lie. So just as he has taught you, remain in fellowship with Christ.1 John 2:27-28 NLT
And now, dear children, remain in fellowship with Christ so hat when he returns, you will be full of courage and not shrink back from him in shame.”
“Remain in me and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.”
-John 15:4 NLT
This is a direct quote from Christ explaining the importance of remaining faithful and consistent in his teaching. The question may be “How can we do this?” The answer is in the Holy Spirit. we do not fall away from Christ because of the gift he gave us in the Holy Spirit. And it is by remaining loyal to the Spirit that we do not fall away from the direction and maturity we find through God. What a joy it is to know Christ through the tools he gave us! What a joy it is to have the opportunity to fellowship with the Father as adopted children in His Kingdom when it comes!
