“…If you continue in my word, …”

In John 8 of the New King James Version of the Bible, Jesus says “If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” The New English Bible translates “…if you continue in my word” as “…if you abide in the revelation I have brought.” What does it mean to continue in his word, to abide in the revelation? Why is this important? What is the meaning of discipleship? How can we come to know the truth and how does the truth make us free?

Join us Wednesday at 6pm for our mid-week prayer meeting where this subject will be explored in the shared readings.
