“…….Whatcha talkin bout Willis……?”

"Listen to me........."

“…Whatcha talkin bout Willis…?”

ABIDE:  Ah…to get along; then go along.  Um…As business people, we are  having to ABIDE all the time…just in order to survive in this crazy world.  My problem is…I’m not good at ABIDING.  I don’t like to wait; I’m a bit intolerant; and non-conforming.  Then, there’s all the rules of life; I like rules, but only if I’m the enforcer , plus aren’t rules supposed to be for the other guy?  I used to go by the adage that a rule is not a good rule, unless it can be broken.  And, I surely don’t like conforming.  I know… it doesn’t match my traditionalist lifestyle, and I realize all to well, that, if we are not able to ABIDE, we’ll find rough roads ahead.  I’ve always bucked the system, too, and have found myself taking a long walk off of a short pier too many times.  And, it’s lonely.  Ok, now do I have your attention?  So, instead, let’s talk about abiding in the sense of DWELLING.  I try very hard to ABIDE in regards to:  John 15:7 – If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.  Very often the problem comes when God’s words are not abiding (dwelling) in us.  In order for the Word of God to abide in us, we must place into action what we hear from Him. James 1:22 says,  “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.”  ….Blessings…cjlb…8/24/13
