Permanent abiding. That was one of the earliest challenges I got through that mighty channel of God’s Word here in Japan. Years ago I read one of Paget Wilkes’ early books, “The Dynamic of Faith,” and he brought to my notice that Jesus said in John 15, “Abide in me.” The problem was how to abide. I thought, “Exactly. That’s exactly it.” The problem is how to abide. An abiding life is a life continuous in the presence of God, of power, and of service which produces fruit.
