John 16 : ” I have spoken these things to you so that you will not fall away.”
We have to read John chapter 15 to know what Jesus had spoken to them, that is what keeps us from falling away.
Jesus also said ; ” They will put you out of the synagogues. Yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he is offering a service to God. They will do these things to you , because they have not known the Father nor Me. I have told you these things, so that when the time comes, you may remember that I told you about them.”
Now in our world today the person that has faith in God , his life should look different than those in the world, isn’t that true ? We are the light in this world , if our light is not bright , we won’t look any different that those that are in the darkness. I believe when we are not reading and studying the word of God , we are temped to fall away . When we are falling away our light, which is Jesus, is not bright as it should be.
I also believe when we fall away , our love for the lost can not be found . The more of the word we have , in our walk and talk , the more Jesus can and will keep us from falling away.
Lets pray for each other that we do not fall away ! May God bless you !
