You already have everything you need to live a godly life. You already have everything you need to live by Christ’s divine life. You already are a partaker of the divine nature in your spirit. You already have divine power working mightily within you. This means you can live the abiding life we looked at in the previous three sessions. However, if you have been born-again for a while, you know living by Christ’s divine life is not always easy. Reading about it in a book and living it in the face of temptation, pressure, and adversity are two very different things. That’s why this session and the next several sessions focus on hinderances to the abiding life.
