How to Remain in Him

I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 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.

The New Creation

As a new creation, you have access to God’s wisdom, strength, provision, protection; you have access to everything God has through what Jesus Christ has accomplished. 2 Corinthians 5:17 – “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” Philippians 1:6 – “being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ”

God is a God of Generations

Abraham was the first person who believed that God could raise someone from the dead. He believed that God would raise his son from the ashes of the offering. In doing so, he paved the way for us to believe that God could raise Jesus from the dead. Abraham came from a land of idols, where people sacrificed their children to false gods. God stopped him from harming Isaac, and told him that He Himself will provide: a prophetic statement that God would provide an offering for the reconciliation of mankind.
