What is it to believe?

Do I really believe Jesus Is Who He says He Is?
Do I believe the Word that He embodied?
In this week's chapter I read:
Believing is living as though John 15:4 is true. 
ABIDE IN ME, AND I IN YOU. AS THE BRANCH CANNOT BEAR FRUIT OF ITSELF UNLESS IT ABIDES IN THE VINE, SO NEITHER CAN YOU UNLESS YOU ABIDE IN ME.
His voice, quiet, calm, ever calls me
to exchange my life, wretched as it may be
for new life, found in abiding
where He has all, Is all
in that secret place
resting in the shadow of His wings
shelter of His love
where I no longer live
but He lives in me

To live as if that radical verse is true? Yes, this is my heart and desire. Everything else pales in comparison. Thanks Karin.

I echo your and Jason's cry of desire - to abide in Him.

Beautiful! "shelter of his love" this is where I want to abide, rest secure, and never leave!
