Work for Him. Rest in Him, the True Vine!
Are you spiritually withered? Do you find yourself lacking the fruit promised to believers by the Apostle Paul? Well, how's your connection to the Vine?
In His discussions with His disciples, Christ used the picture of a plant to illustrate the relationship between Himself, the life-giver, and His followers, the life-receivers. In True Vine, Andrew Murray examines this metaphor, taking the reader beyond a mere surface application of this truth to realize the absolute necessity of "abiding in the vine."
"Religion is meant to be in everyday life a thing of unspeakable joy. And why do so many complain that it is not so? Because they do not believe that there is no joy life the joy of abiding in Christ and in His love, and being branches throughh whom He can pour out His love on a dying world. May the blessed Lord give the blessing. May He teach us to study the mystery of the Vine in the spirit of worship, waiting for God's own teaching."
Andrew Murray, True Vine
"Apart from Me, you can do nothing." We can't try to be spiritual. We can't even try to be good. All of our strengths and all of our blessings come as gifts from our heavenly Father. Examine the fifteenth chapter of John with this skilled Bible scholar when you buy your copy of True Vine today!
