Am I Abiding in Him?

That is what I ask of this church today: a band and a company of people who will settle for nothing less than genuine spirituality, who will ask themselves week after week, “Am I abiding in Him?”

We know, “He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.” Analyze your commitment: does it match His?

If it doesn’t, then draw nigh.

Pastor Melissa Scott continues: Analyze your concern; if it doesn’t match His, then draw nigh to Him and renew the experience. Analyze your attitude about being a flowing light of the gospel and a flowing spring of His nature wherever your life, routines, and tedious detail take you. Analyze your dependence upon what other people do. Analyze your attitude toward the sinner. Analyze your motives. Do you come to church to be ministered to or do you live to minister?

Look at your humility; look at your own results among loved ones. For too long the church world has been running out bellowing with the mouth in little formulas of salvation.

We need to bring that ineffable nature of Jesus until those closest to us will wonder, “What’s made him different? He’s different every day.”

That is what spirituality is, and the Spirit came to be that in you and me if you give Him the chance.
