31 Jesus therefore said to those Jews who had believed him, “If you remain in my word, then you are truly my disciples. 32 You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” John 8:31-32 WEB
“Remain” has the sense of “living in” or “continuing in”. It does not simply mean reading the Bible, but rather reading it, understanding it properly through study, and living it out as God would have us do – following Him as Lord, loving Him, and loving others.
