JANUARY Our ABIDE verse-of-the-year gave us a peek into our source for the unknown year ahead…Jesus said, "I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing." John 15:5 NRSV
WANT 20-20 VISION IN THE YEAR 2020? ABIDE IN CHRIST!
FEBRUARY Our ABIDE focus closed with this “sneak peek into the future...” Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Colossians 3:17 NIV
ABIDING IN CHRIST PREPARES US FOR THE FUTURE!

APRIL - Our Lord does some of His most powerful and life-changing work in our times of waiting. WAITING WELL results in Christ’s presence…"Abide in me and I will abide in you." John 15:5 NRSV WAIT WELL...ABIDE IN JESUS!
MAY – When stuck… ABIDE! Remember: Jesus was stuck on the cross and our salvation is the fruit of it. “apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5 NRSV MAKE YOUR STUCKNESS COUNT... ABIDE IN CHRIST!
JUNE – The ‘if’” ushers us into an ABIDING relationship with Christ...If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 GOD RESPONDS WHEN WE ABIDE IN THE “IF”.
JULY – Christ’s word abiding in us allows us to ask. “if my words abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done unto you." John 15:5 NRSV
ABIDE AND ASK ... in that order!
AUGUST – Total abiding happens as we find our perfect placement, constantly abide in prayer, and enjoy Christ’s presence and let Him love you! Once again we must believe what Jesus said…"for apart from me you can do nothing." John 15:5 NRSV
