John Piper: “If we don’t abide, we are not truly his disciples. And the opposite of true disciples is false disciples. That’s what we are if we count on past experiences without ongoing devotion to Jesus”

From: What Jesus Demands from the World, p. 62

“When Jesus said, ‘If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples’ (John 8:31), he meant that if we don’t abide, we are not truly his disciples. And the opposite of true disciples is false disciples. That’s what we are if we count on past experiences without ongoing devotion to Jesus”

– John Piper
