Do we accept the Savior's invitation to "Abide with Me?"

How often do we live our lives so that the Savior would be welcome?  How often do we invite him to Abide with us?  I think of the second verse of the sacred hymn "Abide with me;"

Abide with me; 'tis eventide.
Thy walk today with me
Has made my heart within me burn,
As I communed with thee.
Thy earnest words have filled my soul
And kept me near thy side.

O Savior, stay this night with me;
Behold, 'tis eventide.
O Savior, stay this night with me;
Behold, 'tis eventide.

Not just before bedtime, but always, may we invite the Savior to abide with us, to watch over us, to comfort us, to lift us, and to help us to become better.  As we serve others, and as we seek to know the Savior, through the spirit, we will come to know him better, and will feel a joy beyond compare.

And then, at the last day, he will be there to welcome us back to the presence of the Father where we will abide with our heavenly parents, our Savior, our families, our ancestors, and our posterity forever.
