Once we come to Christ for our salvation it is important for us to remain in Him. We are called to follow Him, not just believe.
In this post I want to look at some of the things that can help us remain in Him. It is not an exhaustive list, but just some things to help keep us on track.
1. Keep believing Jesus is the Son of God
1 John 4:15 – All who confess that Jesus is the Son of God have God living in them, and they live in God.
2. Remember you became God’s child
John 1:12 – But to all who believed Him and accepted Him, He gave the right to become children of God.
3. Be obedient to God’s words in the Bible
1 John 3:24 – Those who obey God’s commandments remain in fellowship with Him, and He with them. And we know He lives in us because the Spirit He gave us lives in us.
4. Remain faithful to the message of salvation
1 John 2:24 – So you must remain faithful to what you have been taught from the beginning. If you do, you will remain in fellowship with the Son and with the Father.
5. Keep on loving one another
John 15:12 – This is My commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you.
6. Keep on serving God with your gifts
1 Peter 4:10 – God has given each of you a gift from His great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.
These things should help us remain in Christ. It is about continuing to have faith and belief in Christ, remembering we are God’s child, being obedient to God’s Word and loving and serving one another.
