Experience the Father's presence when you Abide in Christ!
"'Abide in Me' (John 15:4). It is to be feared that there are many earnest followers of Jesus from whom the meaning of this word, with the blessed experience it promises, is very much hidden. While trusting in their Savior for pardon and for help and seeking to some extent to obey Him, they have hardly realized the closeness of union, the intimacy of fellowship, and the wondrous oneness of life and interest to which He invited them when He said, 'Abide in Me.' This is not only an unspeakable loss to them, but the church and the world also suffer from their loss."
Andrew Murray, Abide in Christ
So many Christians, instead of accepting God's invitation to enter His throne room, stand alone outside the door, uncertain and ashamed. Christ beckons them to His banqueting table and offers them a room in His house, but they foolishly give up the glory of the life He has offered. They come to Jesus as Redeemer but never go beyond the doorway to abide in Him and experience the unspeakable joy of dwelling with the King of kings.
Andrew Murray knew what it meant to be continually in the Father's presence. Read the thirty-one heart-searching readings contained in Abide in Christ and learn how to live daily in closer communion and fellowship with Him. Accept God's invitation and live in His blessing and glory instead of shuffling your feet at the gate.
Abide in Him; that, when He shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.
1 John 2:28
