Unsafe, non-religious thoughts on spirituality, life, people and things.
I am a former follower, now at home in His love. Remaining. Pickling as it were. Abiding!
Bino,I think it's both. We, as His sheep, follow wherever His voice may lead us (John 10:27). We hear His voice more clearly when we abide in Him.Gary
I think that abiding is a much more accurate word for what he wants for us. Following is sometimes a natural result of abiding, but I think abiding is the bottom line.
I'm don't abide in Him because of my following; I follow because I abide in Him. What blows my mind is, I don't abide in Him because of anything I do - I was already IN Him... but being invited to be in agreement with and in awareness of this abiding makes the following irresistible!
"I'm... don't..." grrrr. Been a long day!
I agree with Gary.
I think it's both too, but it sure does bug me for some reason when I hear Christians say they are a follower of Christ, I think often they really mean follower's of religion..........we can only follow out of abiding. We can't follow apart from abiding, cause then what are we really following????
