By the time I left college I had heard quite a lot about ‘abiding’. There’s a strong emphasis on spiritual formation in Methodist ministerial training,the sense being that you can always read a book about something to learn more facts, but if you aren’t abiding ‘in Christ’ your ministry is going to be fruitless.

I am reminded again today to ‘abide’, ‘remain’, ‘stay’ in Christ. Lord, please centre my heart, mind, soul and strength on you today.
