Read |John 15: 1 - 11|
The call has gone forth. Those who have known Him, and counted Him sweet, have invited you to taste and see. And today, we open our mouths loose our pens and apply our fingers to send one more invitation. We invite you to stay.
Join us as we walk through John 15: 1 - 11 to hear God's invitation to stay--His invitation to be-held continually in His love. Deepen your engagement by answering the reflection questions in your journal.
Beloved, thank you for journeying with us through Jesus' invite to be-held in His love continually. If you were encouraged to any measure of peace and joy by the music that accompanied this devotional, we encourage you to support our sister, Lakecia Benjamin by purchasing her album Rise Up.

Staying is the hardest part of some relationships. The world is a cruel place and people come and go in your life. If you ask me, it is a real mystery to me how some couples manage to last for as long as they can. I mean, sure, love really finds a way, but that does not really happen that often. I hope that I meet someone who will make me stay with her for as long as I can imagine.

Thank you for sharing in our community and for being so vulnerable. Yes, staying is challenging. Sometimes it takes more faith to stay than it does to venture out into something new. Something I find comforting is the way God models loving relationship with us. The Bible says He chooses us. He doesn't wait for us to make Him want us. No, He takes the initiative. He makes up His mind and chooses to love us. It's mind blowing when you think of it. It's not how we naturally approach relationships. But, I believe there is something about the choosing that makes the staying possible. We make up our minds and then all our being follows, no matter what we feel. Because our minds are resolved on the matter we choose staying daily. I also believe that God provides the grace or supernatural enablement we need to choose to stay in the relationships He approves for us. I pray you will experience abundance in your relationships.

All this has become fashionable in today’s times. Posting pictures and viewing the pictures posted by others is the favourite past time of the youth today. They inspire each other to look fashionable by way of such pictures and posts. They purchase fashionable clothes and visit happening places in their town and show it off via social media platforms.
