The apostle John wrote, "Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in Me." [John 15:4, KJV]

Commenting on this text, Clarke, in his Bible commentary, writes that to abide in Him means to "hold fast faith and a good conscience; and let no trials turn you aside from the truth." And when Christ promises to abide in us, He is giving us assurance that "ye shall receive every help and influence from me that your souls can require, in order to preserve and save them to eternal life."
