    [G3306] meno=abide, remain, continue. In Context.
    John 15:
    4 Abide
    in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
    5
    I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
    6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.

    1 Corinthians 3:
    11
    For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
    12 Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw,
    13 each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is.
    14 If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward.
    15 If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved,
    yet so as through fire.


    John 15 continued
    7 If
    you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
    8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.
    9 As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.
    10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.

    1 John 2:6. He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.

    John 15 continued.
    11
    These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.
    12 This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.

    1 John 2:10. He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him.

    John 15 continued.
    13
    Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.
    14 You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.
    15
    No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.

    1 John 2:14. I have written to you, fathers,
    Because you have known Him who is from the beginning.
    I have written to you, young men,
    Because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you,
    And you have overcome the wicked one.

    John 15 continued.
    16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you
    and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.
    17 These things I command you, that you love one another.

    1 John 2:
    24
    Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father.
    25 And this is the promise that He has promised us—eternal life.
    26 These things I have written to you concerning those who try to deceive you.
    27 But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.

    1 John 3:

    4 Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.
    5 And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin.
    6 Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him.
    7 Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous.
    8 He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.
    9 Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.

    John 5:
    24
    “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.
    25 Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God; and those who hear will live.
    26 For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in Himself.

    1 John 3:
    14
    We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love his brother abides in death.
    15 Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.
    16
    By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
    17 But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him?
    18
    My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.
    19
    And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him.
    20
    For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things.
    21 Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God.
    22 And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.
    23 And this is His commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ and love one another, as He gave us commandment.
    24 Now he who keeps His commandments abides in Him
    , and He in him. And by this we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.

    1 John 4:
    12
    No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us.
    13 By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.
    14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world.
    15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.
    16 And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.

    Baptism!

    Ez 36:25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.

    26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

    27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

    (Outside the ark and the church there is no salvation!)
