“Let that which you have heard from the beginning abide in you. If what you have heard from the beginning abides in you, you will also continue in the Son [Jesus the Messiah] and in the Father…” (I John 2:24,25).
There is still much of Jesus to learn and to experience. There is much growing which must take place. Learning the path of our Messiah is a process. We are hardly ever as far along as we imagine ourselves to be. If we abide continually in the Lord, He becomes our food and our drink, then we will grow.
