DescriptionJoy is the result of abiding in Christ. Abiding in Christ means to trust Christ, to pray, and to be obedient to him. Christ calls those who abide in Him, friend.
1 John 2:6
6 whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.
56 Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him.
31 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples,
14 You are my friends if you do what I command you.
16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. 17 These things I command you, so that you will love one another.
7 If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8 By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples. 9 As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. 10 If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love. 11 These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.
1 John 2:17
17 And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.
1 John 2:28
28 And now, little children, abide in him, so that when he appears we may have confidence and not shrink from him in shame at his coming.
