Abide In Me and I In You
Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in Me.
All of us who are truly believers have heard the clarion call, “Come unto Me!” The Holy Spirit as the Royal Ambassador of Heaven has granted that invitation to your heart. Oh, what a great invitation this is – to come and to know Christ! It is so wonderful, so awesome, that there is hardly even anything to compare it to. Why, the very call, the very invitation to know Christ is not just an invitation to come, but that invitation has the ability to enact within you a desire to come and empower you to do so.
When you remember seeing the Beloved for the very first time, how exhilarating, how powerful, how life-changing that invitation, “Come unto Me,” was! Today’s text, however, speaks of another call from our Lord. It is just as inviting as the invitation to come. It is equally clear, powerful, and attractive. It is the call, “Abide in Me.” ........
This is one of the "essential" manuscripts/ sermons of the Real Truth Matters ministry. Please take a moment and visit the Real Truth Matters Homepage and/ or the blog. At either you will find resources that glorify the Lord, teach the converted and make the Lord's call to the lost. There are many messages for free download in MP3 format and several have been laboriously typed into manuscript form.
To God be the glory!
