John 8:31, is a powerful and revealing scripture. As JESUS was talking to some converted JEWS, HE said, "...If you continue in MY word, then you are my disciples indeed;" When we first "accepted" GOD'S free gift of Salvation; whether from a single sermon, a powerful prayer or a catastrophic event in our life, there was no greater Peace, Elation, Power, Confidence and Clarity! AMEN! From that moment on, we stumbled, sinned and struggled with GOD'S TRUTH. "CONTINUE IN MY WORD". Our Faith is only genuine when it is tested. Have we ever held to the Truth, no matter how convincing the lies of those around us? Have we ever, in a glimpse of a moment, done what we knew pleased GOD, no matter how tempted we were by the flesh? It caused us to grow in Faith, The JOY of Salvation Over and Over. CONTINUE IN MY WORD! Just when we think it doesn't get any better: IT DOES!
