What does it mean to “Abide in Christ”?

Hudson Taylor says that when you abide with someone you eat with them, stay the night with them, chat, celebrate, cry, visit, cooperate with them, serve them, etc. (my paraphrase).

To me, to abide means to simply be together as much as possible in all things. I suggest you begin with trusting Jesus to shave each day, brush your teeth, hair, eat breakfast, etc. The simple, can’t-miss stuff. Practice here and you’ll find that this will build new habit patterns for living. Read Heb. 5:14 NAS.
