What about these “conditional” promises Jesus says?
When you see an “if” in Scripture – it means “if”
You do this – I’ll do that.
There are several.
Today, the word “if” doesn’t show up in this translation but it may as well.
If you remain in Me…
The IF is for us, you and me.
He tells us He will remain with us. Period.
But, here’s the IF part…
Do you? Do I? Want to produce good, healthy fruit in our lives?
Do we want our prayers answered?
Do we want to live a victorious life?
Then we must remain IN Him, abide IN Him.
Breathe IN Him. Live IN Him.
Read the rest of John 15.1-17
You’ll learn how to do this “IN Him” thing.
The Crucified One is now The Resurrected One.
I have learned there is no IF for me – only I MUST.
