What does it mean to “dwell” or “abide”?

  1. Dwelling/Abiding = Mystical Experience of “emptying oneself”
  2. Dwelling/Abiding = Obedience

John 15:7–17 - Love one Another

Abide with Me

This is the secret of Victory

  1. If you dwell in me and #my words# dwell in you,
    ask whatever you want, and it will be done for you
  2. If you obey my commandments, you will dwell in my love
  3. This is my commandment
    to love one another just as I have loved you.
  • This is in you already through the Spirit
  • Chose to allow this love to flow out of you,
    and you will experience the love of God flowing into you
