I was sitting reading John 15 verses 4 and 5 and I was reflecting on the word "abide" and what it means to "abide in Christ".

I was sitting reading John 15 verses 4&5 and I was reflecting on the word "abide" and what it means to "abide in Christ". 

In my imagination I saw myself dancing a waltz with Jesus.

Jesus was leading me around the dance floor. He was moving forward which means I was moving backwards. I had to watch His face, His expressions, feel the tensing and releasing of His muscles, to know which way to go, because I couldn't see which way we were going, I had to trust His leading. 

I then thought, that's what it means to me to "abide in Christ", to let Him lead the dance that is my life.
