To be in Christ and for Christ to be in us is to abide. Rather than be about striving and performing to become better at being religious, it is about our relationship with Abba. It is what He is doing in us rather than what we are doing for Him. When Christ abides in us, we bear fruit and are regularly being pruned and cleansed and bear more fruit. We move to this place of abiding through prayer & meditation. It is through reflecting on the life and death of Jesus and how he abided with the Father that we begin to see this reality in our life as well. It is through practices like lectio divina, breath prayer, and holy communion that we begin to abide in Christ and he in us.
