Stay With Jesus
Having “stayed with Jesus that day,” the two disciples recognized Jesus as the Messiah.
In order to know who Jesus is, we too must stay with him.
And Jesus himself teaches us how we can stay with him. Later in the Gospel of John, Jesus teaches that if we eat his flesh and drink his blood, we remain in him (John 6:56). He then tells us to “remain in him” and have his words remain in us (John 15:7). He also assures us that we remain in his love when we keep his commandment: “love one another as I love you.” (John 15: 10-12)
Therefore, if we want to stay with Jesus in order to know him, we need to receive him in the Eucharist, to spend time with his words, and to love one another.
 “Stay,” “remain” and also “abide” are different English translations of the same verb in the Greek text.
