Word for 2018-abide

My word for 2018 is abide.  I have this great picture over my fireplace made by a good friend that reminds me to abide each day.  My understanding of abide is to "be with Jesus."

What does it mean to abide?  Here are some definitions to help us better understand the word. 
  • The Greek word "meno" which is a verb means "to stay". It can also be translated as abide, continue, dwell, endure, be present, remain, stand, tarry for. We will also see these in the Old Testament as well.
Each week I will share a verse (or two) to help us better understand abiding.
13 “There are those who rebel against the light,
    who are not acquainted with its ways,
    and do not stay in its paths. (Job 24:13)
 “Is the wild ox willing to serve you?
    Will he spend the night at your manger? (Job 39:9)
 15 O Lord, who shall sojourn in your tent?
    Who shall dwell on your holy hill? (Psalm 15:1)
