THE ANNOINTING REMAINS


1ST JOHN 2:26-27

26I am writing these things to you about those who are trying to lead you astray. 27As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit— just as it has taught you, remain in him.

2: 27 Christ lives (remains) in us through the Holy Spirit, and we also live in Christ. This means that when we join with him we place our total trust in him, rely on him for guidance and strength, and live as he wants us to live. This is a personal, life-giving relationship. John communicates the same idea in John 15: 5, where Christ speaks of himself as the vine and his followers as the branches (also see 1 John 3: 24; 4: 15). Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible

ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS knowing that the anointing of the HOLY SPIRIT that we received when we were born again will remain in us, just as we are to remain in HIM also.
